Journals and magazines: Finding an article

How to find journals and magazines, and the articles within them, both online and in hard copy.



Finding an article

The Summon search box on the library homepage is often the best starting point for finding online journal articles.

Please note that some journals cannot be accessed by the Summon search box: some of these additional e-journals are listed here. 

If you know the journal that published the article, use the search box in the first section of this guide to see different options for accessing the journal.

Additionally, EBSCO and repositories are also good sources, which can be used to supplement Summon, either in general searches for material on a topic, or for finding a specific article.
