Finding Journals

If you need access to a print journal, search for it on the Library catalogue. The record on the catalogue will provide you with details of what years we have in stock. All our print journals are held on the ground floor of the library in the rolling stacks. 

All of our e-journals can be accessed via the A-Z of e-journals database.

A journal or periodical is an academic publication which is regularly published with articles written by experts which have been peer reviewed (read by other academics before publication.

  • Volumes - these are groups of issues, often organised by year, and this is the first number in your reference.
