Journals and Magazines
If you have never looked at a journal or magazine (e-zine) on the web, here are a few education general interest examples to get you started:
- The Chronicle of Higher Education: Academe this Week
The best-known weekly in higher education. After you find a job, check out their feature This Weeks Internet Resources.
- CyberSchool Magazine
An interesting general interest magazine for students and K-12 educators and much more. Don't miss the Surfin' Librarian, which indexes a tremendous number of useful links to all types of educational resources.
- Education Week on the Web
A rich resource. Includes current issues in education with background information, a separate Teachers' Magazine, a job search engine for K-12 and higher education, and a very nice archival database of all of their published articles since 1989.
- Harvard Educational Review
Pre-dates the web by over 60 years, but here it is, or at least part of it. Article abstracts only, but full text on book reviews.
- Midlink Magazine
For middle-school aged children. Features student writing and art. A good place to keep budding writers from perishing.
- What's New in the World
The San Francisco Exploratorium's high interest monthly science magazine for K-12 students. Like everything the Exploratorium does, the magazine celebrates quality multi-media with its video and sound files. Searchable archive of past issues.
Jump Stations: Journals and Magazines
- From the University of Tenessee, The Daily Beacon lists campus newspapers accessible by the web, sorted by circulation schedule.
A major resource for finding on-line academic journals. Peer-reviewed, student-reviewed, and non-reviewed journals comprise separate categories. Journal pre-print services are also indexed. For a well-organized and up-to-date general list of journals and newsletters on the web, try NewJour.
- Education Journal Annotations
A richly annotated list of periodicals whose focus is K-12 education, including both research journals and children's magazines. Developed and maintained by the staffs of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Instructional Materials Center and the Kansas State University Libraries. Includes both on-line and off-line periodicals. The eclectic, unusual mix of both child-centered and research-focused texts is evidence of some good educator souls behind the project.
- Here is a list of Higher Education Publications available in electronic format, part of John Milam Jr.'s valuable website: Internet Resources for Institutional Research.
- Scholarly Journals Distributed Via the World Wide Web
From the University of Houston Libraries. Links to scholarly journals "that offer access to English language article files without
requiring user registration or fees." Quick and easy to use, although currently not as complete as e-journal (above). Check out the UH Libraries home page for other valuable web resources.
