Literature Reviews: Using Key Journals
Knowing the Key Journals in Your Field
Another strategy in doing a literature review is to search articles in key journals in your field.
At VIU, this strategy can be executed by communicating with your instructor.
- Ask your instructor for recommended journal titles in your particular field or discipline.
- Once you know of specific journal titles, you can search those titles through the VIU Library site.
Searching for Journals
Sometimes, you need to search specifically for a known journal title.
For example, your instructor may advise you to search a particular scholarly or peer-reviewed journal in your field to give you greater depth or breadth to your literature review.
VIU Library has a search function where you can search for a particular journal.
- Use our Journals from A-Z search to look for a specific journal title.
