Academic Journals and Articles
Academic journals contain lots of individual articles on specific topics and themes. They are written by specialised professionals and academics (such as your lecturers).
These journals are highly regarded as sources of academic information and often include the very latest research and analysis from across the UK and around the world.
Finding, reading and referencing relevant journal articles will get you the highest marks.
