What's a Journal?

​Journals are academic sources to find articles in a discipline or field of study that are written by experts. Similar to newspapers and magazines, journals are frequently published (e.g., monthly & quarterly) to cover current topics and issues with scholarly research.  

Most journal articles include: 

  • Original scholarly research 
  • Citations and bibliographies/references 
  • A type of scholarly review 
  • Primary and/or secondary sources 
  • Analysis of a specific current issue/topic
  • Peer review
