Old Norse-Icelandic language and literature at the EFL: e-Journals

Subjects: English

Introduction to eJournals

Many journals are now available online in full text. These electronic journals can be browsed in a similar way to their printed equivalents, but have the added advantage of:

  • being searchable (e.g. by subject, author or title of article)
  • being accessible from any computer, saving the time required to track down printed journals in different libraries 
  • being available when libraries are closed

The easiest way to access them is to go directly to eJournals A to Z. This is an A-Z list of over 28,000 ejournals. Use it to find and connect to journals when you know the title of the journal you wish to use.

(N.B. If you are not connected to the Oxford network you will need to login with your Oxford Single Sign On username and password to gain full access to the above online resources)

Searching for specific eJournals

If you know the title of the journal you are looking for you can search for it using SOLO or eJournals A-Z to see if an online version is available. You can then either access a particular article or browse the most recent issues of journal.

If the coverage you require is not available online, a link is available from within Oxford eJournals to print holdings on SOLO.

MLA Bibliography

The MLA International Bibliography:

  • Indexes articles from over 4,000 humanities journals
  • Allows you to search for articles by author, subject, title or combined keywords
  • Provides links to Oxford e-Journals and SOLO for articles, where available
  • Is better than searching Google

Take a look at the ProQuest Getting started with the MLA guide.

Useful titles

Journal titles are becoming increasingly interdisciplinary rather than subject specific, although most of these journals are more specifically related to Old Norse-Icelandic studies:
