Find e-Journal is used to locate specific journals by title (e.g. Nature). You should use it when you already know the title of the journal that you wish to use, for example from a reading list, bibliography or recommendation.
Find e-Journal should not be used for literature searching (for example searching for papers by keyword or subject). To find papers by keyword or subject you should use a specialist bibliographic database or index for your subject. To find one, use "Find Database" on OxLIP+ and browse by subject or refer to guides for your subject.
To find journals by title:
You can also search Find e-Journal by Subject, Citation or "Other Options". However, these options are less reliable than searching by title. In particular, you should not assume that a journal is unavailable simply because you did not find it using the "by citation" option. Always search by title before concluding that a journal is not available online.
If the journal you want is not available online then we may have it in print. On the e-Journals results screen click on SOLO under "Print holdings" or alternatively start a new search in SOLO.
If you still can’t find the journal please speak to a member of staff as we may be able to get it for you on inter library loan.
Find e-journals is useful for connecting to journals when you are looking for a particular journal title. If you want to search for articles by subject, keyword or author then it is best to search using a specialist database for your subject. See Fnd Databases for more information or speak to your subject librarian,
