What is a Journal?

Journals (aka periodicals) are like magazines: they are subject-focussed publications that contain several articles written by different authors.  Like magazines, they are published frequently over various time-periods - from weekly, monthly to yearly or bi-annually. 

Academic journals are made up of scholarly or peer reviewed articles.  They are written by researchers and must go through a vigorous peer review process before they can be accepted for publication.  They are a major source of published research information.  You can find academic articles with a good search strategy on FINDit or on our more subject specific databases.  If you would like further support and guidance with this, contact your Faculty Librarian. 

Below is a list of recommended databases. Scroll down further for a selection of recommended journals and websites.

Looking for a journal article

  1. If you would like to find journal articles on a subject, try searching by keyword using Advanced Search in FINDit.
  2. You can browse a specific journal through the journals finder. This journal browser allows you to explore journal collections by subject.
  3. Try going directly to a specialist database for results focussed on a subject area.
  4. If you have found an article for which we do not provide access, you can request it from another library.
