Looking for Journal Articles on a Particular Subject?

Try subject keyword searches in Summon or the Databases and limit your search results to journal articles only. Check the Subject Guides for shortlists of those databases which are most relevant for your subject area.


Looking for a Specific Journal?

Search the Library Catalogue using Journal Title Alphabetical Search (searching the exact journal title) or Title Keyword Search (searching one or more words from the journal title). The Library Catalogue identifies physical journal holdings at each library.

Alternatively, use eJournal - eBook Title Search to access journals that are held electronically. This will link you with the databases or publisher collections containing those journals. You can also search within publications by entering the journal name in the From this publication field in Advanced Summon, along with your other search terms as necessary.
