Why are journals important?

Journals are regular scholarly publications which contain articles on specific subjects.

They are important in academic research for a number of reasons:

  • they are the main forum by which research is published,
  • they can explore a narrow topic in depth,
  • they contain current or recent research findings,
  • they are often peer-reviewed so that research findings are checked by other subject experts.
