Linguistics Library Guide: Linguistics Journals

Linguistics journals list


This is a list of the linguistics journals to which we currently subscribe.

Many of our journals offer online access through databases for UIUC students. If you are off-campus when browsing, you will be required to log in with your NetID and password for access, as with other databases. For alternative methods, including VPN, follow the instructions on the Library Technology Guide

The links in the titles of these magazines will take you to the library catalog's listing for each magazine. Once you've clicked through to the library catalog's listing, click the "Discover Full Text" button at the top of the listing's page (or if you don't see this button, click the link next to "Online Access" in the item entry). Either link will lead you to all of our online holdings for that journal.


Alternative Searching

Some other ways of finding and accessing journals include using keyword searches (semiotics, semantics, pragmatics, linguistics, etc.) and searching through the major publishers for linguistics or language related serials. You can start with our own catalog (see the tips below), or use these major hubs:
