Teaching & Learning: Journals

T&L banner


Journals are excellent sources of scholarly information. They provide in-depth, up-to-date coverage of a subject.

They are characteristically very structured and written by experts in a particular field. Importantly, journal articles that are published in scholarly academic journals are "peer-reviewed" which means they have been critically reviewed and evaluated by experts in the field before being approved for publication, so you can be confident that you are getting excellent quality information.

The Library provides access to thousands of journals with the majority available online using your GMIT login credentials. As long as you go via all journals will be available to you both on and off campus.

What if the library doesn't not have the journal article you need?

Not all articles are available in electronic format (even when the library has access to the electronic journal).

This could be due to various reasons:

  • Some volumes of a journal might not be included in the library license, or are simply not available in electronic format, in this case check the availability of the journal in printed format.
  • Publishers often set an embargo period (6-12 months) for their journals. During this time new articles are not available electronically so cannot be accessed.
  • Sometimes there are temporary breaks in the service, try again later.

Try searching Google Scholar by using the significant words or a phrase from the title of the article combined with the last name of the author.

If the Library doesn't provide access to the journal, you can request a copy through the Document Supply service. | Galway City, Dublin Road 091-742785 | Galway City, Wellpark Road 091-745409 | Mayo 094-9043146 | Connemara 091-742666
