Journal Locator

  • Journal Locator can help you determine whether the MU Library has access to a specific journal or magazine. The article you want may not be available in a database, but could be available in print.  Print holdings of journals can be found on the Library's lower level.  These are shelved alphabetically by title. 
  • Use the Journal Locator to search for or within a journal or periodical. To search for journals by subject, scroll to Browse by Subject; click any subject to see sub-categories. For tips, please see the Journal Locator Tutorial.

Peer Reviewed Journals & Ulrichsweb

  • Use Ulrichsweb to get a snapshot of the publication details for most academic journals.
  • To determine whether a specific journal is peer-reviewed, type its title into the search bar.
  • Look for the "refereed" icon indicating that a specific journal is refereed (peer-reviewed).

In the below example, the black and white “ref jersey” icon in the second column indicates that American Anthropologist is refereed (peer-reviewed).
