International law courts, cases & commentary: Journals

Journals, e-journals and working papers

Printed resources

The LawBod's collection of public international law journals is at Internat 300.
The arrangement is then alphabetical, by the first word of the journal's title.

Yearbooks can be an exception - eg. yearbooks of the UN & its organs may well be in Official Papers on Floor 0

If you cannot find a journal browsing the shelves, do a full title (of the journal, not that of a particular article you wish to read in it) search in SOLO

Does the Law Bod have a subscription to the electronic version of a law journal?

Unfortunately, there is not one tool to answer the question quickly.

  • You should try searching both the first two tools linked below.
  • In each instance be sure you are putting in the full title of the journal (not the title of an article)
  • If you don't know what an abbreviation in a citation to a journal article stands for, use Cardiff Index (see link below)

Final recourse would be to check the contents of the major databases listed below the link for Cardiff Index, in case they have recently added journal titles to their holdings.


Specialist bibliography

Each year the Registry of the ICJ issues a Bibliography listing such works and documents relating to the Court as have come to its attention during the previous year. This includes articles in journals & chapters within books.
