Frequently Asked Questions
E-journals are broadly defined as any serial or periodical available via the Internet. The term 'e-journal' includes magazines, ezines, journals, newspapers, and newsletters or any other serial publication.
What is in the Free E-journal Database?
The Free E-Journals List contains over 6,000 journals that have all or part of their text available free over the internet. Journals that are only available by paid subscription or per-use fee were not included.
NO. Manhattan College Libraries subscribes to many journals and electronic collections of journals that are available to the students, faculty, and staff of Manhattan College. If you have a valid library barcode number from Manhattan College Libraries, you can access these journals through the Library Catalog and Databases page. The Free Ejournal list is a separate database available to all internet users, whether they are affiliated with Manhattan College or not.
Because of the vast nature of the internet, no one database can cover all of the electronic journals that exist. Priority was given to journals with some of the following characteristics.
Ejournals with substantial full-text archives.
Ejournals covering topics of use to the Manhattan College academic community.
Journals written in English.
Journals for which there is a print (i.e. paper) version.
Journals produced by academic societies, educational institutions and U.S. and international government institutions and non-governmental organizations.
Journals indexed by citation databases, such as ERIC and the National Library of Medicine's MEDLINE service.
In most cases, the following types of journals were not selected for this database:
Ejournals which require subscriptions or fees for access to all full-text.
Ejournals which are free on a temporary basis or for a limited time period.
Journals in non-English languages which cannot be translated into English using the Alta Vista Babel Fish service.
Web "zines" written by individuals, web diaries, blogs.
Orphan journals, which were published once and then abandoned.
