Journals - Sometimes referred to as a periodical or a serial, a journal is a printed or digital publication that comes out in issues on a regular basis (i.e. four times a year). An issue of a journal contains individual articles, which is what you'll often find as results of your database searches. The UW-Madison Libraries hold numerous print versions of Journals spanning over a hundred years, but most currently published journals can be accessed online, for example Présence africaine, Muziki: Journal of Music Research in Africa, and African yearbook of rhetoric.
