Journals which are also referred to as serials or periodicals are published on a regular basis, such as daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly.

Journals may be:

  • Useful sources of current research especially for emerging issues and succinctly summarising prominent topics;
  • Scholarly or peer-reviewed;
  • Trade journals are published for practitioners but are a useful source of information to business students as they give brief and very up-to-date information on various industries.

Note: Most journal titles held at Western Sydney University are available in electronic format.

Scholarly articles provide an academic perspective on aspects of corporate governance and failures while trade journals can provide up to date views from an industry perspective.
