The terms 'periodical' and 'serial' are used interchangeably in the Library.

Periodical and Serial are broad terms, meaning anything that is published regularly. They could be newspapers, magazines, newsletters, journals, or even a series of books on a topic.

A journal is a publication which comes out on a regular basis and contains scholarly articles. If a journal is peer reviewed, it means that the articles are checked by other academics in the field before publication.
