Middle East Reporter: now online

Posted by Megan on July 10, 2010

The Middle East Reporter, an English-language Beirut-based monitor of news reports, editorials, commentaries and public opinion, is now publishing its content exclusively online. Current issues are now available, and the full archive of issues back to 1977 will eventually be posted on the website as well.

McGill has temporary, trial access to the web publication. Assuming that technical challenges are worked out, we will continue with an online subscription. The temporary log in is the word demo.

The publisher is interested in feedback about this new format, so please send any comments to me.

Bridges journal

Posted by Megan on January 21, 2010

An announcement about McMaster University’s new student-run international relations journal:

“McMaster University’s International Relations graduate students are pleased to announce our new student-run journal, Bridges: Conversations in Global Politics.

The journal is hosted in a multi-media format which includes both peer-reviewed written papers as well as interactive videos which are hosted on our YouTube channel.

The journal is meant to be both a pedagogical tool for graduate students as well as a space for conversations amongst those already established in the field. The journal considers questions about the ‘state of the field’ as well as the theoretical issues which surround these conversations.

Our inagural call for papers on the theme of “Conversation” can be found on our website along with more information about the journal.

Online access to Comparative Politics

Posted by Megan on January 12, 2010

I’m pleased to announce that the library now has current issues of the journal Comparative Politics online. This subscription has been a long time in coming, as the publisher did not previously offer this type of online access to institutions.

We now have access to issues from 2007 onward through IngentaConnect. We continue to have issues from 1968-2005 through JSTOR. JSTOR has a 3-year “moving wall” for this journal, so we will get access to 2006 issues soon.

We still have current volumes and back issues in print in the library.
