An electronic journal is a periodical publication which is published in electronic format, usually on the Internet. Electronic journals have several advantages over traditional printed journals:

  • You can search the contents pages and/or the full text of journals to find articles on a certain subject.
  • You can read journal articles on your desktop, you don't have to be in the Library.
  • You can e-mail articles to yourself or download them for printing.
  • The article that you want to read will always be available, even when the Library is closed.
  • Hypertext links allow you to move to different sections within individual journals or articles and can link you to related resources on the Internet.
  • Journals can include more images and audio-visual material.
  • Journals can be interactive - you can e-mail the author or editor with your comments.
