How can I identify a journal article from my resource (reading) list?

You should expect to see journal articles on your resource (reading) list. Journal articles will normally have volume and/or part numbers included in the reference.

Here are two examples of journal article references:

Bennett, H., Gunter, H. & Reid, S. (2014) Through a glass darkly: images of appraisal. Journal of Teacher Development, 5 (3) October, pp.39-46.

Clarke, T.J. (1995) Freud’s Cézanne. Representations, No. 52 Fall, pp.94-122.

These references can be broken down into different parts in order to identify the actual article it refers to.

A tutorial about identifying a journal article is available from the Skills for Learning website.
