An image of a bound journal volume of the Criminal Law Review 2018, and a loose issue (issue 3, 2023)Journals are essentially academic magazines ⁠— articles, reviews, opinion pieces or even professional updates, for example, can be published in a journal. Issues, or parts, are released throughout the year. They are then bound or boxed together by year, or volume, and put on our shelves. 

If you want to find an article, you need to find:

  • the title of the journal
  • the year and/or volume
  • the page number that the article starts with

In the Law Library, we have a vast collection of journals and they are shelved in 4 areas, alphabetically:

  • A-H (including Cambridge Law Journal, Criminal Law Review)
  • H-M (including Law Quarterly Review)
  • M-Y (including Modern Law Review)
  • Current Journals (these are from the current year, volume, or issues)

As a University Library, we have a lot of print material. With over 0.8 million books and 450 journal titles, we can't hold everything in the centre of Newcastle. So, the Library has access to state-of-the-art off-campus storage facilities, meaning we can hold less-used material for much longer than some other academic libraries.

These materials can all be requested using online forms, and you'll be provided with a scan of what you need, or it can be retrieved for you and collected from the Philip Robinson Library or Walton Library.
