What are journals?

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.

Finding journals

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.
