There are a variety of ways to find journals at the University of Iowa Libraries. Here are some useful tools:
Journal Citation Reports or JCR Web
A comprehensive resource for journal evaluation, Journal Citation Reports (JCR) uses citation references culled from over 7,600 scholarly and technical journals worldwide and includes all specialties in the areas of science, technology, and social sciences. Data reveals the highest impact journals, most frequently used journals, hottest journals, and largest journals. Search for a specific journal or view a group of journals by subject category, publisher, or location.
If the Library doesn't have the journal you're looking for, fill out the Interlibrary Loan form and we'll get it for you from another library.
