What are academic journals?

A journal is an academic magazine covering a particular subject. They are really useful as they tend to cover a topic in depth, and collect articles, essays and pieces written by people who are studying or working in a particular area of study.

Journals have a handy way for you to know everything in it by having an ‘abstract’ right at the top. This is a short paragraph that will tell you everything you need to know about it and then you can decide if it’s worth reading on or not.
