Academic journals publish articles intended for the research community and are usually peer-reviewed. They present the most recent research and are written by experts for research purposes. Journals may be published in print or online formats, or both. The University Library pays license to more that 61,000 full-text online journals that current U Sask faculty, staff and students can access using your NSID and password.

The Journal Collection is housed in the Journal Tower in the middle of the library.
