Print Journals

What are Print Journals?

Academic Journals are collections of articles, original research, book reviews and up-to-date information pertaining to a discipline of scholarly research. They are published periodically, perhaps once a month, bi-annually or annually, rather like a magazine. They are often peer-reviewed by an authority on the subject and since they are published on a regular basis, the newer editions contain current, cutting-edge research.

There are two types of Journal:

  • Print Journals, which are published in paper format and cannot be borrowed or taken outside of the Library.
  • e-Journals, which can only be accessed online. For more information about this, read the Can't find what you are looking for? section below.

Where can I find them?

Our Print Journals are located on the 2nd (Top) Floor of the Library, near to the silent study booths.

How can I find what I'm looking for?

Our Journals are organised alphabetically by Journal Title. Print Journals can be found as single, magazine style editions or collated together as a book. To find what you are looking for, search by subject by using the Discovery database or your chosen internet search engine. Once you have found the Journal Article or Title, make a note of as many of the following details as possible:

  • Journal Title
  • Academic or Author of the Article/Paper
  • Date of Publication
  • Volume
  • Issue Number
  • Page Number(s)
  • Journal Editor

You can then use our Catalogue to see if we have the Print Journal in stock.

Can't find what you are looking for?

Many more of our Journals are in digital formats. To find these, begin by searching our Discovery database, or using the AtoZ Listing of Electronic Journals. If you still can't find what you need, contact us (below), or consider completing an InterLibrary Loan application.
