The Library provides access to a broad range of journals in the areas of international affairs, political science, and law.  The titles listed here are representative of materials in our collections.

If you don't find an issue you need, please let us know.  Some older titles may be available as print only; also there are alternative vendors for e-journals.  You may request electronic copies of articles unavailable at NU through our Interlibrary Loan services.

Below you'll find links to both current and historical news sources.  PressReader is a great resource for anyone planning to travel or study abroad!  It provides newspapers and magazines from over 60 countries, many in their original languages (translation of some titles available).

Try these few basic tips and tricks to improve search results.  For additional help, check out our Top Ten Search Tips!

  • Don't limit search results to full-text articles only!  Use the library branded "check for full-text" links
  • Where available and appropriate, do limit searches to retrieve only peer-reviewed articles.
  • Put several similar terms together to increase search results, using the connector "or"...displaced person or refugee; human trafficking or forced labor.
  • Use additional terms to reduce search results; use the connector "and" microfinance and development  or human trafficking and prevention.
  • Too many results?  Try placing "quotation marks" around phrases. Many search engines, look for the individual words as well as the phrases; these search engines include Scholar OneSearch, Google Scholar, JSTOR, and Social Science Premium among others.
  • Use truncation (usually *) to retrieve different word endings  global* = global, globally, globalize, globalization, globalisation, etc.
