A journal is a collection of articles usually written by scholars in an academic or
professional field. An editorial board reviews articles to decide whether they should
be accepted. Articles in journals can cover very specific topics or narrow
fields of research. Since journals are published on a regular or periodic
basis they are grouped in the category called "periodicals."
Electronic journals, called e-journals, are published on the Web by scholarly
organizations and are made available to you from your library.
