Search EBSCO Discovery Service

Search for your topic on the Library website via EBSCO Discovery Service. E.g. 

Once you have run the search, limit to Academic Journals and expand the Publication facet to see a list of journals that published articles on your topic. The number in parentheses after the journal title indicates the number of articles from that journal that were retrieved in your search. Once you've identified promising titles, visit the journal websites for additional information regarding their scope and editorial guidelines.
