Journals are regular scholarly publications which contain articles on specific subjects.
They are important in academic research for a number of reasons:
Search on the Library website or specific databases to find journal articles on a particular topic.
Use the Electronic Journals to check whether the full text of a journal is available electronically - this is useful if you are looking for a specific article. N.B. Search for the journal title rather than the article title.
This short tutorial takes you through creating a search strategy and highlights some of the ways to find relevant resources for your assignments.
