Journals

The department subscribes to several journals as listed below. The most recent issues are displayed on a rack in the journals room. On the side of the free-standing bookcase there is a list of journals giving the stack numbers for all back issues and bound volumes which covers both current and discontinued titles. There is also a number of discontinued journals in the bookroom, in the journals room (stairwell annex) and some old volumes are housed at Begbroke.

On-line journals

Most journals are now available in electronic form to members of the University using workstations registered in the Oxford domain. Oxford e-Journals gives the full list of currently available journals. It is worthwhile checking the list regularly, as the University is constantly in negotiations with publishers in order to add more titles.
