QuestionWhich databases can I use to search Japanese journals?

On the NTU Library’s homepage, click Databases, and choose from the following three databases to search for Japanese journals:

  1. CiNii (Scholarly and Academic Information Navigator, pronounced like "sigh-knee") : a database service that enables searching of information on academic articles published in academic society journals or university research bulletins, or articles included in the National Diet Library's Japanese Periodicals Index Database.
  2. J-STAGE (accessible from off-campus): including 582 journals (280,974 articles), 125 proceedings, 10 reports & 42 JST reports. 
  3. Annual Bibliography of Oriental Studies: encompasses research papers from China, DPRK, Republic of Korea, Southeast Asia, Southern Asia, and Western Asia dating from 1980 to the present. Materials dating prior to 1980 must be searched for via index cards. Browsing the index is free of charge..

The above are index databases. If you would like to obtain the full-text of a certain paper, please refer to the options below:

  1. First search the NTU Library Catalog (SLIM) for the paper.
  2. If it is not housed in the NTU Library, you may apply for an interlibrary loan: Nationwise Document Delivery Service (NDDS).
