What is a Journal?
Journals are an essential source of academic information and contain the published results of research and developments in theoretical and applied knowledge. Journals are the fastest way for new information to be made available. Refer to them to obtain the most current research in your field of study.
The UOW Library has over 50,000 journal titles containing millions of journal articles.
