Journals

Learning Resources subscribes to a huge range of journals, which are an essential source of current information, news and research.

A journal is a publication which is published on a regular basis eg. monthly. It is similar to a magazine, but is generally more scholarly and academic. You may also hear the terms 'periodical' or 'serial' used-these terms mean the same as 'journal'.

Journals may contain a selection of scholarly articles by various authors within a specific subject area, usually published as original academic research.

Scholarly articles are usually concise, providing in depth information on a narrow topic and include a bibliography and references eg. History of Education, British Journal of Midwifery.

Non-scholarly articles are usually published for commercial rather than academic purposes. They are normally contained in magazines that are glossy and heavily illustrated which appeal to a general audience. Articles are often short and not always attributed to an author and the information is rarely referenced eg. House and Garden, Time Out, Vogue.

Most of our journals are only available electronically (e-journals).

To access to e-journals please ensure that you have signed into myUniHub.
