Architecture & Design Journals

  • Emerging research, case studies, practice, and innovations are often first published through trade publications, conference proceedings and academic journals. Design disciplines convey these ideas through refined images and drawings. Much of this publishing occurs through print and digital editions. 
  • Find Articles in Databases (search across 1000s publications at once)
  • Search the Journal Locator to view complete issues of specific publications.
  • Build a collection of journals to read with the Browzine app. 
  • Access specific articles found through the web by retrieving the DOI with LibKey Nomad browser Extension or the PDF Finder.
  • Full text journal subscriptions maintained are recognized as essential by leading organizations (including NAAB, AIA, Association of Architecture School Librarians,  and CIDA). 
  • Request articles outside of the library subscriptions or for more help.
  • LINK to more information on digital magazines with single user access. (NY Tech only)
