Criminology and Criminal Justice: Journals

About Journals

Journals are an important source of current information for academic research. Journals focus on a specific discipline or subject area, and each article, written by an expert in the field, will report or discuss new research.

  • Frequency of publication enables you to keep up-to-date with issues in your subject area. 
  • Your library has a collection of print journals for this subject - check with the library staff if you're not sure where they are.
  • You also have access to online journals and journal articles - use the library search to find what you need.
  • If you'd like one to one support on how to use the library search or how to get the most out of journals, you can book an appointment with a member of the library team.
