Cinema journals and magazines are less rigidly divided between peer-reviewed academic journals, on the one hand, and general, popular or trade magazines, on the other. (For more information, see: What are journals?). As a key example, Sight and Sound is important for the academic discipline despite not being peer-reviewed.
On this page is information about a few examples of both types of journals: Screen and Film History (both peer-reviewed) as well as Sight and Sound. Current access to the full text of these is provided at UC either online only or in combination with print format. For a list of other currently-subscribed cinema journals, see Current Journals.
