About Theological Journals Search LibGuide
This LibGuide lists and links to open access--free on the Web--journals, magazines, newsletters, and other periodical literature related to theology, Scripture studies, pastoral and practical ministries, religious studies, and cognate disciplines.
The full text of many of these journals is searchable and retrievable via Theological Journals Search, a Google custom search engine created in 2007 by Sally Jo Shelton. For now, only a representative number of the hundreds of journals searchable in TJS are listed in the guide, but more are being added as time allows.
To browse religion journals for which full text is available in the ORU Library, go to the Publication Finder (formerly the A-to-Z Journal List), and click the Religion and Philosophy category or do a keyword search for an area of interest, e.g. theolog* or Christianity. Many of the titles are in electronic format with some available also or only in print, microform, and/or CD-ROM. Most are restricted to use by current ORU students, staff and faculty, while some are open access (free on the Web). To begin your search, click the link below.
