A journal is a scholarly publication containing articles written by researchers, professors and other experts. Journals focus on a specific discipline or field of study
Many academic journals are not freely available via Google hence the need to use the databases from the Library's website. GoogleScholar is a subset of Google that acts as an international index to articles, reports, theses etc. Google has no rights to make any item freely available unless already available but publishers ahve collaborated with Google and if UKZN pays for access to a journal it will be accessible via Google Scholar.
If you do not know in which journals articles appear, search a database - click on the databases tab at the top of this page.
If you are working from off campus you will need to authenticate yourself on the off campus option.
