Finding Journals Instructions

How to Find a Specific Journal


Looking for a specific magazine, journal, or newspaper? Search a comprehensive list of periodicals to find out if the Library has a specific publication in paper, microfilm, or electronic format. Journals & e-Journals includes:

  • The titles of all periodicals the Library currently receives (or received at one time)
  • Links to the electronic version of periodicals when available through a subscription database


  • Go to the NWC Library home page
  • Click on the Search Journals link located under the main search box at the top of the page



  • Type the Name of the Journal you are looking for (NOT the title of the article) in search box.
  • Click Search.

NOTEYou may also search for a particular periodical by Subject or by Browsing the list of titles.

Example: A search for the journal Foreign Affairs displays the following results:


From the above results one can see that Foreign Affairs from Volume 1 (1922) through the present is available in both print and microfilm format in the Naval War College Library. It is also available in electronic format from a variety of online sources.


  • Always check the date range for periodical availability when selecting an electronic resource link.
  • For electronic format select ProQuest if that option is given. ProQuest is a very user-friendly resource that links you directly to the periodical requested.
  • Detailed information about the Library’s print or microform holding of a journal can be found by searching its Title in the Primo VE.
