“How do I find this specific journal article?”

Having trouble locating that journal article you want to read? It can seem like a bit of a maze, and some publisher websites may even ask you to pay. Once you know where to go it’s straightforward to find a specific journal article, and the library can get hold of an article we don’t have in our collection – for FREE (you will need to allow around 10 working days for us to get it for you).

The video below explains a bit about the different parts of a journal reference, and then how to find a journal article (sometimes called the “full text” of an article). It also shows how to order the article if the library doesn’t have it already.
