Middle Eastern Studies : Articles

Resources and content of interest for researchers and students of Middle Eastern Studies


Rutgers provides access to a lot of Middle Eastern journals through Browzine, which gives access to Middle Eastern journals such as Middle Eastern Studies, The Middle East Journal, International Journal of Middle East Studies, Middle East Law and Governance, Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies, Middle East Journal of Culture and Communication among others. Browzine can be downloaded for iphone and android and you can save and export journal articles from it to such services such as DropBox, Medeley, RefWorks, EndNote and Zotero. However, not all journals are available on Browzine so make sure to go to the Rutgers Journal search too. (The journals on Browzine can be found normally through the Rutgers journal search as well.)

You can also access Browzine from the Rutgers libraries home page by going to the Services and Tools tab, where you can click on Browzine which is under 'tools.'
