Finding printed and electronic journals at Oxford

The complete collection is indexed in the Oxford library catalogue SOLO. Use SOLO to find printed and electronic journals.  

To access electronic journals only, you can use the Oxford e-journals list, which you can access from the OxLIP+ page or the SOLO home page.

You can also search for journal articles in SOLO using the Articles & More tab. If the article title doesn't come up, don't give up! Search for the article under the journal title using the main SOLO search box. 

Below are quick links to some of the key science e-journals we provide. You can find others by searching SOLO or the Oxford e-journals list.
