English Literature: Articles

Finding Journals

When you already have the complete reference to an article (title, author, journal title, date), search the journal title in GIL Find to see if UGA owns it online or in hard copy.

Can't get it at UGA? See your options for getting the article from another library.

Literary Criticism

MLA International Bibliography, 1926-present: The major source for locating scholarly articles and book chapters in literary criticism and language studies. The MLA DIrectory of Periodicals is also searchable through this database.

JSTOR: A collection of full-text scholarly journals in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Coverage begins with the journal's first issue, and JSTOR's "rolling wall" means the past 3-5 years are usually not available

Multi-Search: A combined search of GIL and about 180 GALILEO databases including the MLA Bibliography and others in fields outside of literature. 

LION: The 'Criticism' section of LION includes the Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature, an index to scholarly articles, book chapters, and book reviews.

Project Muse: Like JSTOR, Project Muse is a collection of full-text scholarly journals in literature, the humanities, and some social sciences.

Medieval and Early Modern Bibliographies (formerly International Medieval Bibliography): Articles and books on medieval civilization.

Iter: Gateway to the Middle Ages and Renaissance, 1859-present: An index to articles and other scholarly publications about literature, history, religion, philosophy, art, and other subjects during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, 400-1700.
