What is a journal?

Journals (also known as periodicals or serials) are magazines that cover a particular subject or profession. Each journal issue contains a number of articles, written by different authors, all of which will relate to the subject covered by the journal.

Look out for peer-reviewed journals which contain academic/scholarly articles - these are written and edited by experts in their field.

Most journals are available online, either separately or within databases. You can find details of all of our online journals on our Ejournals A-Z list.
