Many journals are still available in print only; increasingly there are many also available or even exclusively available online.

This list is based on one initially compiled by Herman Tull, Lecturer in Sanskrit, Princeton University, November 2012, for the Religion in South Asia listserv (RISA-L). Annotations have been added about availability at Emory. Some may be available free online from the publisher; some, available online via Emory license (accessing via campus computer or network id); and some may have print issues at Emory or a combination of print and online issues available via Emory licenses. Print runs may be located at the Theology Library, in Woodruff Library, or in the Storage Library. Some journal runs are available via Microfilm. Emory licenses online access with multiple aggregators, so sometimes online access may be available from multiple sources with or without overlaps in coverage. These various access points will typically be listed in the "Online Resource" tab of the DiscoverE record of a Journal. Sometimes these sources will not include the publisher itself, and the publisher may impose an "embargo" of six months or more on access to recent issues. If Emory doesn't have the journal or specific issue you want, ILL can usually get it for you. If you think Emory should have a subscription, contact the South Asian Studies Librarian: firstname.lastname@example.org.
