Jewish studies: Journals & Databases

Introduction to Monash University Library resources for Jewish studies

Key Journals

These are some of the key journals in the field of Jewish Studies. It is easier to search for journal articles using the Library's databases but you can also try to find relevant articles by looking in the key journals themselves. You can browse through journals and look at their tables of content online or in print, depending upon their format. With some online journals, you can also try searching for key terms or authors within the publications themselves.
