Biological Sciences: Journal Articles

Why Use Journals?

  • Articles are more up-to-date than books
  • They offer greater detail and insight into research
  • Peer-reviewed articles are considered more reliable

How Do I Know If You Have It?

Found a good article? Now you need to know whether you can get the full text.

If you've run a database search, the article's record may have a "Full Text" or "PDF" link - that's great: click to get the full text. If not, look out for the Full Text Finder icon - click this to find out if we have access to the journal. 

If you found the article another way, search eJournal Title Search for the journal (not article) title to find out if we have access to the electronic version. If not, run a "journal title" search on WebCat to see if we have it in print.

No Full Text?

Important article? Can't get the full text? Try our Inter-Library Loans service...

Off-Campus Access

Very few of our resources are freely available to any web user. If you're at home, the easiest way around this problem is to sign into the University's SVE service.

Alternatively, some resources may have an "institutional" or "Shibboleth" login option. Use this and log in with your University username and password.

Library Chat

The library chat service is staffed 10am - 5pm Monday to Friday, except for University closed days. Click the image below to open chat.
