The library has subscriptions to over two hundred philosophy journals. If you have a specific article citation, you can use the "journals by title" tab on the library home page to see if we have that specific journal, then navigate to the specific volume, issue, and article you want.

Start with the the Philosopher's Index to identify articles on your topics. This database provides only and indexed listing of articles and abstracts. When you find an article of interest, you can click on  the "360 Link" next to the abstract to quickly link to the article in our print and major electronic journal collections. If the "360 Link" tool doesn't connect you to the journal, double check with the "journals by title" search; the journal you want may be in one of our specialty databases.

Philosophy journals can be found in many of our databases, including:

  • ABI-Inform
  • Academic Search Premier
  • Academic OneFile
  • Biography in Context
  • Biography Reference Center
  • History Reference Center
  • Project Muse
  • U.S. History in Context
  • World History in Context

Our reference librarians (203-371-7726) can help you search for your topics efficiently.  Keep a list of key names (important contributors to a theory) and terms for your search. The bibliographies in the books and articles you have may include citations for other articles you'll want to include. Depending on the scope and time frame for your research, you may wish to request articles outside our library's holdings using our ILLiad interlibrary loan service.
