Aging Journals you may find useful

Aging Journals.  If you want the latest anti-aging articles, you want to read academic journals on the topic.  These journals are where you will find the latest research. If you want to know what the latest studies are saying, you need to get access to some of these Aging Journals.  Sometimes it takes awhile to find them. Your local librarian may be of real help in finding a journal or a specific article.  Here are a few suggestions for finding Aging Journals.

First, check to see if the journal (or article you want) has been published online. That is easy to do with a web search.

Second, check with your local college or university. The college/university library may subscribes to some of the journals you want. And if you do not have a college or university library card, start with your local public library.  Sometimes public libraries have a few of these journals.  But often they can to obtain journals through 'inter-library loan'....even from colleges and universities. Remember your librarian is you key to finding what you want.

If neither of these things work, your librarian may be able to contact a local college or university to see if you could receive special permission to use their collection. Remember: most librarians want readers to find what they want and these professionals often know ways of borrowing things or getting copies made of specific item that most ordinary readers do not know about. So ask...and be sure to ask about costs. You do not want to be faced with an unexpected bill.

And since many libraries do not allow journals to circulate be prepared to take notes or pay for photocopies of specific pages.

Another way to find some of the Aging Journals.  If you do not have access to a college or university library check with your local public librarian. Your public library may subscribe to a few of these journals AND if your local library is part of an 'inter-library loan' system, your librarian may be able borrow a copy of the journal for you or ask the other library to make a copy of the article you want. (Be prepared to pay.) 

Your librarian is key to finding what you want. And most librarians delight in doing so.
