But these papers could also contain much more. Their function, in most cases, is to introduce the reader to a number of basic concepts or to present in some detail some of the arguments already made by the author. In other cases the papers could be purely descriptive. But some of the latter are, for example, dedicated to the reader in order to offer the reader something new to think about, a fresh perspective, on or by some work. The best-known literary journals are the scholarly essays and monographs of scholars. The journal is the product of an effort undertaken in an institution which strives for greater efficiency and to be more accessible to a wider readership. The journal’s main purpose is to present articles with a wider interest and to enable a broader readership to participate in the discussions. In this respect, the journal as a whole can be regarded as a kind of general-purpose press to provide a forum for discussions within the academy. The journal publishes the work of individual scholars and also of numerous groups. To a certain extent, the journal has a general scope: it aims at publishing the work of scholars from various fields of interest and to which a certain degree of technical expertise is already present. But a large number of topics of the journal can be regarded as belonging to the field of the humanities. There are journals devoted to natural history and to the natural-history-journal, which is also devoted to the natural-history-journal. A number of journals focus on art, music, literature and architecture, as well as special issues of scientific journals and special issues of the journals of international communication. The journal of the Sociology of the Social Sciences has a special focus on studies on the sociology of the social sciences and on studies of the sociology of social problems. As we have already seen, in addition to the regular publications of all the scholarly societies, there are also a number of scholarly review journals.

A number of literary journals are also specialized. In this section I will mention some of them. There are journals devoted to fiction and to serious non-fiction. There are also literary-newspaper journals which are devoted to literary subjects such as biographies and novels. One of these, the European literary magazine L’Exposition contemporaine, is devoted specifically to literary studies, such as criticism and interpretation. The journals of criticism and interpretation are concerned with art and culture in general. The journals of literature and the arts are focused not only on literature but on all fields of art. In this direction, there is a special journal of criticism which is devoted to literature and whose editor is a member of the Royal Academy of Arts and Letters, of which the British Academy in London is a part. A number of literary magazines are devoted to the field of sociology. One of them, the journal L’Exposition contemporaine, is devoted specifically to sociology. The periodical L’Illustration contemporaine, which is also devoted to the field of illustration, is devoted primarily to the study of visual arts. The journal of the History Research Association is devoted to the history of literature and to its interpretation. Other literary books are dedicated to literary criticism and analysis. Also specialized literary magazines have publications.
A number of journals have publications which consist of special sections devoted to particular topics or special parts of the field of the culture and literature of a country, such as the Italian periodical L’Antica lupa or the French periodical La vie de la culture.
