Journals that Specialize in Literature Reviews

Some journals contain many types of research papers (literature reviews among them) while other journals focus mainly on one in particular. See below for a listing of Psychology journals that specialize literature reviews specifically.

The above list of psychology journals with a literature review focus was used with permission from the Psychology: Literature Reviews research guide by Christine Murray, Social Sciences Librarian, of Bates College Library.

How to Search a Database For a Literature Review

PsycINFO has a special search limiter that allows the user to filter my research methodology (i.e. literature review).

Database search screen with filter literature review selected under methodology

Not all other databases have this search filter available. In those situations, combining your topic with "literature review" or "review of the literature" (in quotation marks) can help.
