Journals to which the Library has purchased electronic access are listed on the Library's ejournals webpages. You can search the list by title, subject, vendor, or citation. If you search by title, you can enter a search term (eg Jahrbuch) or browse through alphabetically. The subject search involve broad categories (eg Arts and Humanities) with optional additional subcategories (eg Literature); they do not specify German-related areas. The ordinary catalogues also provide links to ejournals (a search for a particular journal title on Newton, for example, will provide separate records for physical copies and electronic access).

The sheer number of ejournal titles, either in German or relating to the German-speaking world, plus the constant updating of our subscriptions means that a list of these titles on this page is not practical. Readers should instead use the ejournals webpages and the ordinary catalogues as directed above, where access requirements can also be found. This page instead highlights particular collections of German language journals.



An online archive of German language scholarly journals, similar to JSTOR. Its focus has been to digitise core research journals and it currently gives access to more than 400,000 articles in over 200 journals. DigiZeitschriften covers academic subject areas in the humanities, sciences and social sciences and you can browse within each broad subject area on the website. Collections currently include 22 journals on religion, 14 on history, 13 on economics, 9 on German language and literature and 7 on Egyptology and Coptology. Mathematics is particularly well covered and is represented by 38 journal titles.

Many of the journals accessible through DigiZeitschriften are also available in the University Library in printed form; this online service should, however, make searching for and retrieving articles an easier and quicker process.
