Journals will be very important to use during your studies, they will provide you with high quality, reliable and up-to-date information. Journals are usually published on a regular basis, such as weekly, monthly or quarterly and each issue contains a collection of articles by different authors usually reporting the latest research.
Note: Using articles in assignments will demonstrate you have read widely on your topic.
You can find all the journals we subscribe to using iFind, the library catalogue. If you are unsure how to use our journals take a look at our guide. The main way to locate articles on your topic is to use a bibliographic database. If you are new to database searching start with CINAHL (the main database for Nursing).
