Classics and Ancient History: Journals

Introduction

The majority of journals held by the Bodleian Libraries in both physical and electronic formats can be searched for via SOLO, as can the individual articles within e-journals. If you are new to Oxford libraries or to SOLO, we recommend visiting the 'Getting started' and 'How to' guides at the links below.

Physical Journals

The following tabs list Oxford libraries with journal runs of interest to Classicists. Access rights and borrowing privileges are subject to conditions; please check individual library websites for further information.

For those wishing to learn more about searching for journals in Oxford, we recommend the following guides:

The Sackler is home to the largest open-shelf collection of Classics journals in Oxford, many of which are available to borrow to Oxford members. 

The Bodleian Library is the University's largest library, with holdings numbering several million items. It offers library use only access to many philosophy journals, the majority of which are stored offsite.
Journals stored offsite need to be requested to a reading room via SOLO.

Electronic Journals (ejournals)

Ejournals are digital manifestations of  select types of serial publications. Broadly speaking they come in two forms: they are either 'born digital' or are digital reproductions of physical works.

The following tabs list ejournal collections and platforms relevant to the study of philosophy. For those wishing to browse philosophy ejournals, we recommend visiting e-Journals A-Z, or BrowZine.

The following is a sample of ejournal collections applicable to those studying Classics at Oxford. However, as a highly interdisciplinary subject, other ejournal collections may be of relevance. We recommend visiting Databases A-Z for a full breakdown of eresource packages, including trials and new arrivals, available to Oxford University members.
