What is an academic journal?
Known as an academic, peer-reviewed, refereed or scholarly journal. A journal is a scholarly periodical, relating to a specific academic discipline. It is different than a magazine or a trade journal in that its intended readers are academics, researchers and students. They can be considered an academic conversation on a chosen topic.
Journals can be published electronically or in print form. Nowadays most journals are in electronic form and are indexed in databases.
