Mass Media and Journalism: Journals/Magazines

In this guide you will find a sampling of many types of research resources on the topics of media and journalism.

What are Journals and Magazines

What's the difference between a journal and a magazine?

Popular Magazines: serials that target general audiences with popular or current news stories. Authors are not usually scholars in a specific discipline and do not conduct original research. These articles are not peer-reviewed.

Scholarly/Professional Journal: journals that present in-depth, original research in a specific field. These articles have been reviewed by other scholars in the field for scholastic standards and validity. Professional journals may also contain profession or industry related news.
