Journals – Bath Spa University


We stock a variety of journals – also known as periodicals, serials, or magazines. Journals are items that are regularly published, they often have an issue and volume number.

You can find journals we stock using the Journals A-Z to search for journals by title, and see which volumes and years we have access to. 

The majority are e-journals which are accessible online, and a few are held in print format.

Where are the print journals kept?

See details for each campus library below.

  • Journal of Health Services Research is under J
  • Sociology of Health and Illness is under S

How journals are cited

On reading lists and bibliographies, journal articles can be recognised by the elements listed. They'll have an author, the year of publication and a title (like books); then will come the journal title (often in italics), the volume number, issue number and page numbers of the article within the volume. For example:

  • Bradbury, J. (2002) 'The third way: where next for New Labour?', Politics Review, 12(1), pp. 20-23

There may be variations of style but, essentially, this is how they'll appear.
