Annual Reviews are comprehensive literature reviews on topics; they are not empirical articles, but summaries of other empirical studies. Use them to familiarize yourself with the research in an area and to mine the references for original empirical research studies. You can browse them or use the Advanced Search to search within specific ones.
BrowZine works by consolidating academic journals from multiple publishers in the GSU Library collection into an easily browsable newsstand format for your mobile device or web browser.
As its name suggests, BrowZine is designed for browsing recent scholarship in journals you read regularly or in tracking specific subject areas. Older backfiles (pre-2005) are not generally available within this service. For more in-depth research or to find articles on a specific topic, we recommend subject specific databases or Discover search. For access to the library's full range of back issues, please search our Journal List.
When this happens, notice that below the "no full text available" message, there is an option for an additional service: "Request through ILLiad."
ILLiad is our interlibrary loan service. It is a free service. We will try to get the article from another library for you. If we are successful, the article will be available to you in about 1-2 business days. If you have never requested an article through interlibrary loan before and need help, contact the global studies librarian.
