Journals


Journals are generally print materials with up-to-date scholarly information on a subject. They may contain articles on research, current issues, opinion, etc. There are also electronic subscription versions. The two major journals on Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder are available by accessing the electronic version using the DISCUS database. I have provided you with instructions on how to access each.
