Oxford University subscribes to an extensive collection of e-journals and series of conference proceedings.
The Bodleian Libraries subscribe to a large range of journals and conference proceedings electronically. Search by title using SOLO or e-Journals A-Z. You can also browse our e-journals using the Browzine website.
If an electronic version is not available, we may have it in print copy. Print copies of journals and conference proceedings are held in the closed stack at our Book Storage Facility in Swindon. They can be located and requested using SOLO.
Pre-prints and author manuscripts
Many academic institutions now collect peer-reviewed author manuscripts and pre-prints from their academics into digital repositories. This can provide easy open access to high quality scientific publications. You can find repositories and search their contents using the OpenDOAR directory.
