Notice: there is currently an issue with the Find a Journal search link on the library's homepage.  While this problem persists, please use this link to search for periodicals:

NOTE:  If you need a lot of articles, it's best to use the article databases, rather than searching one journal at a time.  Click here to learn the best way to search for articles in our library.


When you want to find a specific journal, magazine or newspaper, the library's Journals search (aka Find a Journal or Serials Solutions) is the place to go.

1.  On the library's homepage, look under Search the APUS Library and click the Journals tab.

Find a Journal

2.  Enter the title of the periodical you need (e.g. Review of Military History, Consumer Reports, Wall Street Journal, etc.) in the search box and click "search". 

  • If you know only part of the title, enter a word or two and use the drop-down menu next to the search box to select "Title contains all words."
  • Do not search for article titles!  The Journals search does not search at the article level.  See the note below.

3.  Click Search.  A new window will open.  If prompted to log in, use your APUS ID and password.

4.  If the periodical you need is available as full text in one of our databases, you will see it listed in the search results, along with one or more database links.  Dates for which full text is available will be included. 

5.  Click a database link to browse or search inside the periodical.

If you don't need a specific article from that journal, but simply want to browse a journal in your field of study, contact the librarians for suggestions or explore your degree program's research guide.
