Journal Finder: What Journals Does the Library Have?

Search for Journal Titles

If you have a citation for an article, use Publication Finder to see whether the library has full-text access to the journal in which the article appears. Search for the title of the journal. 

Journal Finder lists all the journals, magazines, and newspapers that the library subscribes to and provides links to those that are online.

If we don't have the journal for the article you need you may request the article through interlibrary loan.

Top GIS Journals

In an article published in March 2014, "Mapping the Literature of GIS" (College & Research Libraries), Edith Scarletto ranked journals cited in four important GIS journals—Annals of the Association of American Geographers, Cartography and Geographic Information Science, International Journal of Geographic Information Science, and Cartographic Journal—between 2008 and 2010. Journals were ranked according to the number of citations. The study identified 23 core journals and a large number of peripheral journals.


Below are listed the top 53 titles to which the SMU library does and does not provide access, along with embargo information where relevant. The numbering reflects each journal's overall ranking.
