Journal is the most commonly used word used for a periodical, a magazine, a newspaper, or an annual report - in fact any publication which appears on a regular basis. Journals provide more up-to-date information than a book and describe the latest research. The Library has subscriptions to over 45,000 journals.
There are several ways to can find out what journals we have:
Enterprise will show you both online and print journals held by the Library. Search for specific titles or journals on a topic.
Search for the journal title and then limit your results to the format "Journal".
Search for a topic and the word "periodicals" to find journals on a topic eg food periodicals
