Key Resources

Where do I find journals?

Over 500 linguistics journals are available from the Bodleian Libraries, mainly in the Taylor Institution Library or in the closed stack. Search SOLO for linguistics journals by selecting 'journals' and type in the keyword 'linguistics'. This will show most of the linguistics journals in the Bodleian Libraries.

Electronic journals in full text can also be found on SOLO.

 To find individual articles from journals that are electronically available, please go to Articles & Working Papers.

Journal Acronyms

Journal acronyms are often used in references instead of the full journal title. Acronym conventions for linguistics journals (e.g. JL for Journal of Linguistics) can be found in the Directory of Periodicals within the MLA International Bibliography (on SOLO). Within MLA, open 'Search' and select 'Directory of Periodicals'. Key in title (or select from a list) and open up the found title for more details, including the acronym.

Open Access platforms for linguistics

Open Access articles on Endangered Languages may be published on, the Lincom platform for Endangered Languages.
