Directory

The JURN Directory contains around 3,000 live Web links to selected open access or otherwise free ejournals in the arts & humanities, nearly all of which are indexed and made searchable in my JURN search engine. Predatory titles are excluded.

The JURN Directory is intended to be scanned down, in columns. There are four columns, and the basic column divisions are:

* Creative arts (architecture, art, music, etc.) and media.
* History, religion, and anthropology.
* Literature and film.
* Philosophy, organisation and preservation of knowledge + various.

HTML Web version: JURN : the directory of scholarly ejournals in the arts & humanities. (Updated on an ongoing basis. Last updated and link-checked: 21st November 2019).


PDF version: JURN : the directory of scholarly ejournals in the arts & humanities. (Saved as a PDF for A2 paper size when printed in landscape orientation. PDF version no longer updated. Last update: 9th December 2018).

A note on PDF reader software:

Note that Microsoft Reader can’t handle external Web links in PDFs, and they are also ‘off’ by default in SumatraPDF Reader (how to turn them on in Sumatra). Adobe Acrobat Reader should be fine.

Some side-scrolling may be needed, if you have the likes of SumatraPDF hard-coded for ‘cover page + double-page spreads’. The same may be true of other PDF readers that you’ve pre-configured for magazine reading.


Similar comprehensive directories are the DOAJ and the EZB. Jan Szczepanski’s List is also useful for finding non-predatory titles published in languages other than English and which are unlikely to be on the DOAJ.
