About Journals

A journal is a scholarly publication containing peer-reviewed articles or research papers written by researchers, professors and other experts. RCSI Library subscribes to an extensive collection of electronic journals in disciplines in the health sciences (and more!).

Use our Journal Search portal to find a specific journal or browse journals by topic. Browzine also provides an accessible, alternative way to browse the journals available from RCSI. A small number of print journals are detailed in Primo VE.

If you do not know which journal to use or if you wish to search across a range of journals, please use the Databases to search for journal articles. 



What does peer-reviewed mean? What is the peer-review process?

Peer-reviewed research (e.g., a journal article) is research that has undergone a review process prior to publishing, to ensure it meets high standards. This review is both lengthy and rigorous, and means that the research is checked by various academic researchers (peers) for quality, viability, and authenticity.
