Why use magazines and journals for your assignments and projects?

Journals and Magazines are an important source of specialist information. They: 

  • Can be published in print or digitally on the internet (e-journals)
  • They are published daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually which means the information they contain is very up to date.
  • They contain short articles reporting on research and current campaigns and news
  • Journals are usually written by and for University researchers and professionals. The articles are often peer reviewed - meaning that they have been critically reviewed by experts in the field before being published.
  • Magazines are usually aimed at businesses and the general public for current awareness and advertising.
