Journals Newspapers and Periodicals

In spite of the fact that we now have online search engines such as Google or AllTheWeb to direct us to sources, we still spend a lot of time reading journals, newspapers and periodicals of every kind and description. JournalPundit is devoted to the world of periodicals online or offline.

We can find various resources on the internet

Far from home on business or pleasure and want to read your home newspaper?
A fabulous searchable database of about 10000 newspapers is found at Just select the geographic region of your interest and you are on your way to newspapers around the world. The comprehensiveness of this site is first-class.

A good place to start looking for leading popular magaziines and periodicals is the Reference Desk, which has many links to magazines.

The Internet Public Library of the School of Information at the University of Michigan has many links to periodicals of all kinds, but be sure to scroll down every page to the bottom or you may miss the list of resources for the link that you clicked - they always put links to sub-headings at the top and the actually found resources at the bottom, and you often do not see these unless you scroll the page.

For scientific and research periodicals, Science Direct describes itself as "the world's best resource for research journals, abstract databases and reference works".

Stanford University's HighWire is the web's largest database.
It covers Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, Medical Sciences and Social Sciences and specializes on articles from science and medical journals. You have to register to use this service - not all of it is free - and when you enter an inquiry, again, scroll down the page to see your results, where you see a photo of the journal, the conditions for use (e.g. "free" or "purchase access"), the name of the author(s) and title of the article. Abstracts of purchasable articles can often be viewed for free.

Entrez-PubMed is described as follows:
"PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine, includes over 14 million citations for biomedical articles back to the 1950's. These citations are from MEDLINE and additional life science journals. PubMed includes links to many sites providing full text articles and other related resources."
