International Law: General Sources: Law reviews, journals, articles

This guide lists essential sources for researching general aspects of international law. For specialized topics, such as human rights and international arbitration, see the guide International Law: Specialized Sources.


Use the Journal title search form below

  • if you already have a citation to an article in a particular law review, journal, newspaper, or other periodical, or
  • if the results of your Article Finder search (see FINDING ARTICLES by topic, author, date, etc. in the next box) do not provide a link to the full text of an article that you want to read.

To use the Journal title search, search the title (or ISSN) of the law review, journal, newspaper, or other periodical, not the title of the article

Journal title

The results of a Journal Title search include 

  • print and microform journals in the Law Library and
  • online journals via the NYU Law Library and the NYU Bobst Library (Westlaw, Bloomberg Law, Lexis+, and many other journal databases)

If you do not find the journal that you need through a Journal title search, try searching Bobcat to find out if the journal is in print or microform at the NYU Bobst Library. NYU Law faculty and students also may use the ILLIAD interlibrary loan system to request material not owned by or available through the NYU Law Library or the NYU Bobst Library.

Working papers

FINDING ARTICLES by topic, author, date, etc.

Article Finders include online indexes (lists of articles) and databases of full-text articles/journals. You can search article finders by keywords, subjects, author names, dates, etc. Westlaw, LexisAdvance, Bloomberg Law, and HeinOnline are "article finders," but for more PDFs, more journals (including more non-law journals) and more years of the journals in the "big four," you should also search additional relevant Article Finders available through JULIUS.

The Article Finders listed below tend to be useful for foreign, comparative and international law topics. Depending upon your topic, you may want to search additional Article Finders, Interdisciplinary databases and relevant non-law databases available through the NYU Bobst Library
