Classical Studies

Why are journals important?

Academic journals are scholarly periodicals (i.e. publications which come out on a regular schedule) which contain articles on specific subjects.

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

  • they are an important forum by which scholarly research is published,
  • they can explore a narrow topic or problem in classical studies in depth
  • they contain current or recent research findings,
  • they go through a process called peer-review, which means that research findings and conclusions are checked by other subject experts

The Electronic journals tab allows you to search the library's collection of journals. If you are looking for a journal about a particular topic or have found a likely looking article in a bibliography and want to check if we have access, this is often the best place to go.


Browzine is another way to search the library's journal collections--if you prefer getting information in a visual format, you may want to start here.
