What are Journals?

A journal is a periodical publication that contains scholarly information in a subject area.  Scholarly or academic journals are collections of journal articles written by professors, researchers, or experts in a given field. 

Journals are one type of serial, which is any publication published in parts (usually in regular intervals).  Other types of serials are magazines and trade publications.  Articles that undergo a review process by other experts before publication are known as peer-reviewed.


Journals are available in print in the Sexton Library (shelved alphabetically by their title -- no call numbers are used), or in electronic format through one of Dalhousie's research databases
