What is a journal?
A journal is essentially an academic magazine. Journals normally focus on a topic area and contain multiple articles about that topic area.
Journals and journal articles focus on specific topics in much more depth than a textbook and they usually contain more current and cutting-edge information - so they are great if you are researching a topic and want to find out the most current information on it. The library stocks mostly academic journals although we also have some commercial magazines available.
