Find a journal article
The Library provides access to journal articles from over 40,000 different publications. These cover a wide variety of subject areas, and include many of the leading academic and professional titles within the various fields. Journal articles typically contain scholarly writing, relating to a particular academic discipline. They can serve as an introduction for new ideas and research, or may provide a critique (or new interpretations) of existing theories or research findings.
There are two main types of article search you can undertake using the library web-pages:
Search for a specific journal article (or articles from a specific publication)
- Browse or search the electronic journals A to Z to see which titles the library has in electronic format, you can then easily link to the full text of your chosen publication.
- Use the library catalogue to search for journal titles in printed and electronic format
(Search tip: Select More Search options, the select Journals from the Collection search field)
