Discover these journals at a special display on the ground floor of the library from November 14th – November 20th

The Journals Division of the University of Chicago Press publishes 50 journals and hardcover serials, in a wide range of academic disciplines, including the social sciences, the humanities, education, the biological and medical sciences, and the physical sciences. These journals deliver original, peer-reviewed research from international scholars to a worldwide audience. Many of the journals were the first scholarly publications in their respective fields. For instance, the American Journal of Sociology, founded in 1895, is the oldest academic journal devoted to sociology. The Journals Division has been a pioneer in making scholarly and scientific journals available in electronic form in conjunction with their print editions. Electronic publishing efforts were launched in 1995 and by 2004 all University of Chicago Press journals were available online.

As part of the partnership with JSTOR in the Current Scholarship Program, The University of Chicago Press brings all of its journals to JSTOR’s new integrated web interface.
