How can I search for journal articles?

If you already have a particular journal reference,  try our Journals search. Results may include both online and print versions, or both. Check whether your reference is covered by the years / volumes available.

If you want to find articles on a specific topic, or by a specific author: you can search in one or more of the specialised databases to which we subscribe. See below...

Multidisciplinary databases

These databases cover many other subjects as well as literature and are useful for cross-disciplinary topics.

Keeping Up-to-Date

Here are some convenient ways of keeping up-to-date with journal articles being published on your subject:-

LION (LiteratureOnline) enables you to set up automatic search alerts. Save your search on the database and when new records matching your search are added they will be emailed to you.

For key journals, go to the publisher's web site and see whether there is an option set up a table-of-contents alert. If so, each time a new issue is published the table of contents will be emailed to you.
