Journals and magazines

What are journals?

Journals are academic magazines. Most of our journals are available online. A small number of titles, mainly more professionally focused magazines, are available in print.

Journals are

  • published daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly - therefore the material is up to date
  • generally the first place that scholarly research is published
  • often 'peer reviewed', this means that articles have been critically reviewed by experts prior to being published.
