Q. What ejournals does King's subscribe to?


What ejournals does King's subscribe to?

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.  

Where do I search for ejournals?

You can search or browse for ejournal titles using the ejournals A-Z list. 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 red ‘I’ icon 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 red ‘I’ icon next to the title on the ejournals A-Z list. 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 the Library Search (the ejournals A-Z list and the library catalogue do not allow you to search for ejournal articles). 

If you would like to search for articles on a specific subject, then 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 the Library Search. If the journal you wish to consult is held at another library site, then you can request an article using the inter-site article request service.

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.
