5.4 How to find journal articles

You can find articles in journals by using databases and ejournal collections. Databases:

  • provide access to the content of journals within broad or specific subjects areas
  • also index collections of essays, conferences papers, websites, book reviews and research reports
  • sometimes provide full-text versions of articles, and
  • allow researchers to identify and locate key journals in their subject areas.

However, not all publications indexed are held in the library. You will need to check the Library's Catalogue to see if we subscribe to them.

Ejournals are similar to databases but more often lead to the full-text of an article.
