Ways to Keep Current

Most academic databases allow you to set up e-mail alerts or RSS feeds for individual journals or searches (keywords, etc.). These allow you to keep current of new publications in your field without having to regularly repeat multiple searches.

JournalTOC is a free service that collects feeds from over 19,000 academic journals, and can provide you with new tables of contents whenever a new issue is published.  Browse by subject area, journal title, or combine multiple journal titles into a single feed!

Highly Cited Journals

Here are examples of highly cited journals from international development and related subjects. Set up personalized feeds to these or other journals using the free JournalTOC service, publishers' websites, or through our subscription databases.

Listings here are based in part on impact factor as calculated by Journal Citation Reports for 2012, where the equivalent category is called "Planning & Development," and on relevance to the study of international development at Tulane. Check out this helpful guide from the good folks at the University of Utah for more information on impact factors and other journal citation measurements.
