Where to find specific e-journal titles

E-journals can be found in the Library Catalogue. Type in the title of the journal. Make sure that the option in Journals is selected, and then click on the magnifying glass icon to search.

Remember to search for the title of the journal, not the title of a journal article; for more information on the difference between the two, see What are journals and journal articles?
If we have online access to the journal for which you have searched, the catalogue record will contain the link(s) for you to follow. You will be prompted to log in with your University username and password when you click on one of these.
Some titles have more than one link; this is because we have coverage in multiple databases. The text for each link also explains which years of publication are covered.

If you would like to browse journals for your subject area, then take a look at the "Key Journals" section in your A-Z Subject Guide. Many of these will be available online.
