This guide provides a topical list of all Journals and Magazines currently received by Tyler Junior College's Vaughn Library. Click the tabs above to see journals and magazines in that subject category.
Several different terms refer to the same type of medium—periodicals, serials, journals, magazines. Each of these is typically defined as a publication that is published regularly and has no predetermined end to the series.
Journals usually are intended to support academic study. The articles in journals are written by experts in the subject field. They contain references. The articles that the editors put in journals have passed the standards of other experts—a process called “peer review.”
Examples: American Political Science Review, PS: Political Science and Politics, Journal of Radio and Audio Media
Magazines, on the other hand, are usually intended for a popular audience. They are written with a style and content understandable by the average reader. They typically feature more photographs and illustrations than do journals.
Examples: Bon Appetit, Money, New Yorker
