Here are a few journals for exploring literary theory and criticism specifically, or criticism in general. The University Library has a current subscription to all of them. You can read current articles, browse the journals ' archives, or even search these journals individually for articles. Searching the databases, like MLA, allows you to search multiple journals at once, so of course, it's usually more time efficient than searching one journal at a time.
