Online Journals
We are pleased to note that there are now 23 journals available at UTPJournals Online.

Our site has all the features that users and librarians look for in an electronic resource. In particular, we offer readers full searching (full text, Boolean, relevancy ranking, and persistent keyword searching), quick searching (single field, single button, automatic recognition of ISSN and DOI), advanced searching (citation text, publication, subjects, or content types), search results (summaries, dimensional navigation, abstracts, citation or tabular results, search within results, filter selected items), parent list navigation, publication metadata, TOC alerting, forward reference linking, and link exports. For librarians, we simplify access management, linking, and usage reporting with powerful yet easy-to-use administration tools. Support for established and emerging standards, such as OpenURL and COUNTER, enables seamless integration with existing library systems. Our site is now also Shibboleth compliant.

We have a complete archive for the following titles: Canadian Historical Review (from 1896), Cartographica (from 1964), Seminar (from 1965), Canadian Review of American Studies (from 1970), Genocide Studies and Prevention (from 2006), Rotman International Journal of Pension Management (from 2008), and SIMILE: Media Studies in and Information Literacy Education (from 2001 to 2009). Libraries retain perpetual access to the archive of each journal once purchased. If the library maintains a current subscription, there is no further fee. Otherwise, there is an annual fee of $50 to maintain the site. Please see the price list for further detail. Discounts for multiple purchases and consortia are available.

Most journals on the site have at least ten years of previously published volumes available electronically.
