What ejournals do I have access to at King's and how do I access them?


Libraries & Collections subscribes to over 25,000 electronic journals which are available to staff and students of King’s College as well as providing access to thousands more open-access or freely available titles. Please refer to the FAQs below for information on accessing.

Where do I search for ejournals?

You can search or browse for ejournal titles using the Journal Search. Search for an ejournal using the full title of the journal if you know it or by using keywords. Once you have located an ejournal title, you can click on the Available Online link for further information. This will provide information on what years are available for the ejournal and links to where the full text of the ejournal can be accessed. Sometimes there may be several links available if the ejournal title is available on more than one publisher website.

How do I access ejournals?

Once you have located the ejournal you'd like to access, click on the title to go to the ejournal. You will then be transferred direct to the publisher website or presented with a menu if more than one option is available. Most ejournals can be accessed on campus without requiring you to log in. If you are off campus, then you will need to log in using your King’s username and password. There are exceptions and you should always check the Available Online link next to the journal title. Some ejournal titles have specific instructions to access the journal and these might include a special username and password. Further information on passwords and guidance on how to log in are available on the accessing eresources page.

How can I search for articles?

You can search for journal articles using Library Search. For in depth research or searching you should use an appropriate index or bibliographic database. Further information on databases can be found on the databases page and guidance on which bibliographic databases are available for your subject area is available on the Library Subject Guides

What if I can’t find the ejournal I want?

If we don’t have the ejournal available, then we may still hold a print copy of the journal. Print journals can be located by searching Library Search or Journal Search

If the journal is not held by the library in electronic or print then the Interlending and Document Delivery Service can obtain an article for you.
