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.  You'll find lots of articles about Social Work on Library Search.  You can also look more systematically for journal literature by using our subject databases.
