Re.: Journals/Current Awareness
Dear list members,
1. Below is a list of several new journal issues that came out in June
(don't let the edition date fool you!). I've included publishers' URLs so
that you can view the tables of contents and/or abstracts.
Disasters, vol. 24, no. 2, June 2000 -
International Journal of Refugee Law, vol. 11, no. 4, April 2000 -
International Migration, vol. 38, no. 2, June 2000 -
Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, vol. 26, no. 2, April 2000 -
Online Journal of Peace and Conflict Resolution, no. 3.2, June 2000 -
2. A new abstracts journal has just been released by the Social Science
Research Network entitled "Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Law
Abstracts." Its objective is to "publish abstracts of working papers,
forthcoming articles, and recently published articles dealing with the law
of immigration, asylum, refugees, alienage, citizenship, nationality and
naturalization in the United States and abroad." Tables of contents are not
yet available online, but requests for sample copies can be completed by
going to https://zeus.ssrn.com/SECURE/subscription.taf?_function=trial.
3. The Journal of Humanitarian Assistance is in the process of moving to a
new site: http://www.jha.ac. At present, the old site is still being
updated (see http://www-jha.sps.cam.ac.uk/jcontent.htm). Several new
academic articles were posted in June.
4. The Humanitarian Affairs Review: A Quarterly Journal of Global Policy
Issues (http://www.humanitarian-review.org) is being re-organized and is due
to become available again at the end of July. A brief description of its
focus is available on the ECHO site at
A number of publishers offer free "current awareness" services that inform
their readers by e-mail when a new journal issue has been published.
Several examples include:
Carfax: Journal of Ethnic and Migration
- Select "Table of Contents Alerting"; this service can be initiated for
other journal titles as well.
OUP: International Journal of Refugee Law - http://www3.oup.co.uk/reflaw
- Select "Email Table of Contents Service"; this service can be initiated
for other journal titles as well.
Alternatively, you can simply search several journal publishers' web sites
from one starting point at PsychArticle Search
order to locate relevant article references. In spite of the title, any term
can be entered as a search term, not just psychology-related ones.
