Magazines publish articles on topics of popular interest and current events. The articles are written by journalists and are for the general public.

Magazines, like journals and newspapers, are called “periodicals” because they are published at regular intervals throughout the year. ┬áThe UI&U Library provides access to online magazines, which are available from the Journals tab on the homepage.
