A journal is a periodical devoted to disseminating original research and commentary on current developments in a specific discipline or field of study. Journals are usually published in quarterly, bimonthly, or monthly issues. Popular interest magazines, trade journals, and newspapers that are also published periodically. Use the Journals by Subject to look for these titles online in digital format. Is there a journal you want that we don’t have? Articles from journals available at other libraries can be obtained through interlibrary loan

While common today, the online journal is a comparatively new development in the long history of publishing. Many older volumes of journals, magazines, and newspapers are only available in print formats. Print format journals can be browsed on the shelves, or retrieved by request if held at the Tulane Libraries Offsite Storage Facility. Search for periodical holdings in physical or online formats using the Library Search interface.
