Finding journals in full-text… using eJournals Finder


Do you want to find out if the Library service has access to full-text for a particular journal? Maybe you would you like to read the latest issue, or browse the contents?  One of the easiest ways to do this is to use eJournals Finder.

eJournals Finder allows you to type in a name of a journal and check if we have electronic access. It will tell you instantly which of our Library databases you will find the title in and, most importantly, will allow you to click straight through to the journal. 

To get started, ensure that the dropdown menu option for ‘Journals only’ is selected beneath the search box. Type in the name of your journal in the search box at the top. 

eJournals Finder – homepage

If you are unsure of the exact title, leave the blue dropdown options at ‘Title’ and ‘Contains’. If however you know exactly what you want or you have a journal with a very short – or common – title, you can change those dropdown options to ‘Exact Match’ which will allow you to search for titles like The Times or The Economist easily and quickly. 

Use ‘Exact Match’ when you know the exact title

Once you find your journal, clicking on one of the blue database links (listed under ‘Full Text Access’) will take you directly to the journal homepage where you can browse or search to find the content you need.

Accessing The Economist

You’ll find a link to eJournals Finder on all of the Library pages, on the right-hand menu. 

Remember this service is best used when you want to find a single named journal title. If you want to search for articles on a topic, it is best to use one of our journal databases which will give you results from a variety of business journals. We hope this will keep our journal access simple, efficient and effective. As always, if you have any questions or comments, please contact the Library service.
