About Journals

A Journal is a scholarly publication or academic magazine usually published at regular intervals eg. monthly, quarterly etc. Journals are excellent sources of scholarly information providing in-depth, up-to-date coverage of a subject. We have a small collection of journals on the library shelves, but most of our journals are available online. 

Finding a journal title is different to finding a journal article. Each journal title has a number of individual journal articles in each issue. To search for various journal articles key your search terms in to and then refine your search where necessary. To find a journal title online search our e-Journals Finder.
