The JPL Library has access to many journals in physics. Now there are a couple ways to browse them by title, you can click here to see a complete A-Z list of all physics journals, or you can click on any of the fields listed below to see the journals within it.
Click on any of the cover image, you will see the table-of-contents for the latest issue. Use the panel on the left hand side to navigate to earlier issues and years.
Browsing by journal is good for keeping up-to-date. If you want to research on specific topics, we suggest you use Web of Science or Compendex search for articles from multiple journals. You can also contact the Library Reference Desk, ext 4-4200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a literature search.

- Is it “the Smiths’ house” or “the Smith’s house”?
- Should I underline an URL in my list of reference?
- How many authors should I list in my reference if there are twenty plus authors in the original paper?
These are just a few examples of questions authors/writers encounter, and there are style guides providing answers and guidelines for these type of questions. Chicago Manual of Style is a preferred style recommended by the JPL Technical Writing Group, and JPL Library is now providing access to the online version.
Go to the URL, http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/home.html, from within the JPL network, and access this reference guide.
