Law: Journal articles

Finding journal articles

Journal articles are a secondary resource useful for analyses and opinions on legal issues. 

To find a journal article where you have the citation, search for the journal title in Primo Search. Navigate to the volume, issue and page number of the journal citation.

To find an article on a particular topic, search in a Journal Database. AGIS Plus Text is highly recommended for Australian content.

Abbreviations of journal titles

You may find abbreviated journal titles in databases or in reading lists (such as ALJ for Australian Law Journal).  To find the article from a citation you will need the full title, and also AGLC referencing requires you to give the full title of the journal when you cite it.

Try using one of these lists to find out the full titles of journals from the abbreviations:
