E-journals for Film Studies

The Library subscribes to a couple of print journals for Film Studies, but the majority of our journals in this field are electronic. The Library Catalogue provides details of all the journals which the Library subscribes to in both print and electronic format. Enter the journal title into the keyword or title search box and select Electronic & Printed Journals Catalogue.

Note that the Catalogue does not give details of individual journal articles - to search for these, you'll need to use one of our Databases for Film Studies . Databases such as Academic Search Complete, Communication & Mass Media Complete, and International index of performing arts are the best place to start if you are looking for articles from a range of journals.

The following e-journals are available to Brookes staff and students, both on and off campus. Note that in order to access most electronic resources from home, you need to log into Athens. Check our guide to Logging into Athens for tips.

To access any of these e-journals, look up the title in our A-to-Z electronic journals service or on the Library Catalogue
