Searching for e-journals

e-Journals: by topic

If you are searching for a particular topic, then electronic databases generally provide a much easier and more effective way of finding information. Library subscribes to a wide range of electronic databases via the Internet, and these can be accessed via Databases A-Z. Searches can normally be carried out under author, date, keyword, subject, journal title as required.

Electronic databases contain information from journals in various formats:

  • abstract (summary) e.g AMED
  • index (bibliographic information), eg Design and Applied Arts Index
  • full text (whole articles) e.g Emerald Fulltext
  • a mixture of abstract and full text, e.g. EBSCOhost.

e-Journals: by title

Electronic journals are available in a variety of ways:

  • In some cases individual titles can be published through the publisher's web site.
  • Electronic data host services such as EBSCOhost and ProQuest bring together the full text of a wide range of electronic journals from many different publishers.
