We stock a variety of journals – also known as periodicals, serials, or magazines. Journals are items that are regularly published, they often have an issue and volume number.
You can find journals we stock using the Journals A-Z to search for journals by title, and see which volumes and years we have access to.
The majority are e-journals which are accessible online, and a few are held in print format.
Where are the print journals?
Most are held in the Journals Room on the ground floor of the Library.
Newton Park Library Store
Some of the older issues of journals are shelved in the Library Store. You can request these via a Store request form available at the Library Reception Desk.
Current issues of journals are displayed in the library entrance and the previous issues are in the mobile shelving. This also holds issues from past subscriptions.
Sion Hill Library Special Collection
Special Collection journals can be requested by completing a form available at the Sion Hill library reception desk.
Current issues of journals are displayed in the Common Room Cafe area on the ground floor of the main campus building. Previous issues are stored in the Library Enquiries Office in Room F38.
Print journals are displayed and shelved in alphabetical order of the full title. For example:
- Health is under H
- Journal of Health Services Research is under J
- Sociology of Health and Illness is under S
How journals are cited
On reading lists and bibliographies, journal articles can be recognised by the elements listed. They'll have an author, the year of publication and a title (like books); then will come the journal title (often in italics), the volume number, issue number and page numbers of the article within the volume. For example:
- Bradbury, J. (2002) 'The third way: where next for New Labour?', Politics Review, 12(1), pp. 20-23
There may be variations of style but, essentially, this is how they'll appear.
