Journal Directories


DigitalCommons@UNO holds works that showcase the research and scholarly output of the University of Nebraska Omaha, such as previously published journal articles, books, book chapters, unpublished works, technical reports, online journals, conferences and events held on campus, and other materials deemed appropriate by the administration of Criss Library. Faculty publications, proceedings, and presentations are broken down by college, department, or program.

Journal Impact

Here are two databases that are useful in determining the importance of a journal. These databases track citations to determine how many scholars are citing articles from particular journals.

  • Journal Citation Reports
    Select "JCR Social Sciences Edition." From there you can get lists of the top journals by subject including communication and linguistics. This database doesn't really work for literature and other humanities subjects.
  • Google Scholar Metrics
    Use this tool to explore publications in research areas of your interest. To explore specific research areas, select one of the broad areas, click on the "Subcategories" link and then select one of the options.
