About Journals & Magazines

Journals and Magazines are another important body of published materials to find more information about your kupuna. In order to find these articles, you will need to look in the Hawaii Pacific Journal Index, a citation index that has indexed articles about Hawaii, published in local journals and magazines. You may find a short article about your kupuna in a popular magazine like Hana Hou! or you may find a lengthy scholarly article about your kupuna published in a peer-reviewed journal. If you are unsure about the differences between journals and magazines, watch the video below.
