Scholarly journals

Scholarly or academic journals are important resources for academic research and assignment writing as they contain up-to-date, specific and often in-depth information. It is even better to use peer-reviewed journals for research. These journals contain articles that have been critiqued by scholars/experts in the same field to ensure that they reflect solid scholarship and high academic standards.

The best and most efficient way of finding articles in peer-reviewed journals is to search the online databases. Here, by doing an advanced search, you can often limit the search to "peer-reviewed articles only" or "scholarly articles only".

The online databases can be found on the Databases A - Z list

Key journals for Media Studies

Many of the journals listed below have print as well as online versions. In many cases, print has been terminated in favour of online subscriptions. To check for print locations and shelf numbers, go to the iCatalogue. In the Cecil Renaud Library, Pietermaritzburg, print journals are arranged on the shelves (first floor) alphabetically according to title. In the E.G. Malherbe Library, Durban they are arranged according to Dewey Decimal Classification.
