Academic journals are collections of articles written by scholars in a particular discipline. They cover the latest, in depth research and thinking on specific topics.
Like magazines, they publish more than one edition each year, often one each month or quarter.
You can find both print and online journals (ejournals) using the library.
Find journals using the Journals tab, or the Journal format filter, on LibrarySearch. This shows the print and ejournals that the Library provides access to. Click on the journal title to see which editions, volumes and years are available. Follow the direct links to ejournals or use the campus and call number details to locate print journals.
You can also find ejournals using the Journals A to Z list.
Find out about the best journals and journal collections for your subject on your course resource help page.
Understanding print journal holdings on LibrarySearch
The print journal search results display will often name a single issue. Click on the journal title to reveal everything we own for that journal.
The holding summary displays the first volume held, its issue or number and the year. A dash indicates we are still receiving all issues of this journal. Underneath the summary we list each recent issue (since August 2018) .
e.g. Vol.23, no.3-, 2011-
We have all issues of this journal starting from issue number 3 of volume 23 in 2011.
Journals we no longer subscribe to in print will show the range of copies that we own in their holding summary.
e.g. Vol.13, no.1-Vol.22, no.12, 2008-2017
We have copies of this journal starting with volume 13, issue 1 in 2008 and ending with volume 22, issue 12 in 2017.
