If you're overwhelmed, here's what I would recommend re:journals:
1. Start with the universities/presses you recognize.
2. In each, start with the topics that interest you most.
3. Select a journal in that topic.
4. Start working back from the most current issue.
5. Pick out article titles that look interest.
6. Glance over the abstract to make sure you're actually interested.
7. Download the PDF to read later — open access won't last forever.

random kitchen science tip
Turmeric is very tasty but it can and will stain everything it touches a bright fluorescent yellow colour. But the molecule which causes that colour is broken down by ultraviolet. So if you don’t want your chopping board or wooden spoon to stay vibrantly yellow, leave it in the sunlight for a couple of hours and all the yellow will be gone.
Just make sure it’s not sunlight behind a window. That probably won’t work, because glass blocks most ultraviolet light.
