Specialist journals

What do specialist journals offer me?

Specialist journals are the most widely used tool in many disciplines to publish research results in a contemporary way. They can therefore also be described as "the place of scientific discussion".

The Trier University of Applied Sciences has acquired and licensed a number of journals for you. The articles can be available for you in various ways:

  • in printed form on the journal shelves of the library,
  • in electronic form as content of licensed databases,
  • in electronic form as content of licensed journal archives.

Meta search tools such as the EZB Electronic Journals Library also allow you to search for freely accessible or commercial journals (archives).
