Film & TV Studies: Finding Journals

Library Subject Guide for Film & TV Studies


Why use journals

Journals are generally more current than books and more specific in their focus. Many academic journals are peer-reviewed, meaning they are evaluated by other experts in the same field before publication. This makes them a good quality source of academic information.

You can access thousands of journals through the Library, most of these online: we subscribe to over 67,000 journals electronically.
