ECON 110: Introduction to Macroeconomics (Dalgaard)

For Professor Bruce Dalgaard - Winter 2020

Journals - Best Bets

Another approach to finding articles is to browse specific journals known to publish articles on your area of interest. The following journal titles contain articles on topics related to this class. Browse either the paper copies in the library or by using the electronic databases that index the articles.

Search for articles within all of these journals and more using an article index/database like EconLit or Social Science Citation Index. Use the "Publication" filters to limit to known journals like these.

Journal Titles to Avoid

Some titles are going to be too dense, too advanced, or too specialized to be of much use to you for this assignment. A few of these titles are likely to show up in your searches because they are prominent journals in the field. Save yourself time and frustration by trying to avoid articles from these journals (for now). 

  • American Economic Review
  • Econometrica
  • Economic History Review
  • Journal of Economic Education
  • Journal of Economic History
  • Journal of Money, Credit and Banking
  • Journal of Political Economy
  • Quarterly Journal of Economics
  • Review of Economics and Statistics

Accessing Journals

If you want to know if Carleton subscribes to a particular journal (print and/or electronic), do one of the following:

1. From the Library home page, click the Articles tab, then the button that says Browse Journals. Once there, search for your journal title. 

If the journal is available electronically, follow the link. If a journal is available in paper at Carleton, write down the call number.

2. From within a bibliographic database, click the "Find It" button to see if Carleton subscribes to that journal. Follow the links to full text or print information.

Good Economics Blogs

Do you use a feed reader on your phone or mobile device? Or even on your computer? If not, you should take a look. Feed readers let you see new content from many different sources in one place. My favorites are Feedly and Flipboard. I also use Pocket to save copies of the most interesting things I read. Here are some great sites to visit regularly and add to your feed reader.
