Scholarly journals typically contain articles written by academics or professional researchers. Peer reviewed journals contain articles which have been reviewed and approved by recognised experts in particular subject areas.
Review papers or articles present a comprehensive review of the existing body of knowledge in a specific subject or topic. Review papers can be very useful for locating the core literature in a particular subject area.
The library has access to many journals relevant for French in both print and electronic format. Print copies of journals are mainly located in the Floor 1 Journals Collection.
