Communication: Finding Articles / Journals

A guide to library resources for Communication majors, graduate students and faculty.

Communication Journals

Communication Databases

Use Milner's "Article Search" Advanced Search interface to search selected Milner databases in a variety of subject areas simultaneously. Note: Article Search does NOT search every Milner database.

Begin your search for articles in the field of Communication in this key Communication database.

Many topics in the field of Communication cross over into other subject fields and academic disciplines.  Depending on the topic of your research, searches in multi-disciplinary and subject databases may be useful for identifying relevant articles in the literature of other disciplines.  

Many online journals are available to current members of the ISU community. Search for e-journals by journal title here

When you have a complete or partial citation to an article, use the Citation Finder tab to search for online full text of the article.

NOTE: Not all journals, magazines and newspapers are available with full text online.

If online full text of an article is not available, search Milner's Catalog for availability of print copy. In Milner's Catalog enter the journal title, change the type of search from "Keyword" to "Title" in the first adjacent dropdown list and "Contains" to "Is (exact)" in the second, and change "Material Type" to "Journals."

You may still request articles through interlibrary loan, but many libraries are not participating in Interlibrary Loan for the time being due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so there is no guarantee that you will be able to get the articles you request.

Find the full title of a journal here when the journal title is abbreviated in a citation or reference.
