New e-resource: Cambridge University Press Journal Archive

Cambridge University Press now has instant online access to two centuries of academic excellence and publishing history from Cambridge University Press in the shape of the Cambridge Journals Digital Archive

University members may now access online any issue of any volume of any journal ever published by the University’s Press. All the journals are fully searchable on the Press’s Cambridge Core platform.

Drawing on more than 450 journals, 1.2 million articles and over 6 million pages of rich content, Cambridge journals digital archive offers a vast and user-friendly resource that allows researchers to place current research in historical context.

Titles and their coverage can be found via the iDiscover catalogue. A full list of the titles and their coverage is also available in this spreadsheet. Articles in the archive years of each journal are also discoverable in iDiscover. For example, see this article “On mental physiology, or the correlations of physiology and psychology” by Robert Dunn from an 1854 issue of the journal Asylum journal of mental science, the forerunner of the British journal of psychiatry.

This new digital archive has been made available through special funding provided by the University to support teaching and learning impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and the unavailability of library resources on campus.
