Geography and Environment: Journal Articles

Quick Links

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

Manage Your References

If you're working with lots of articles you may find EndNote, EndNote Online or Mendeley helpful. You can organise your references and insert them into your write-up - automatically formatted into the right reference style.

How Do I Reference An Article?

Referencing articles you've used is important - it demonstrates that you've researched your topic, it allows others to find the article to read for themselves, and it avoids accusations of plagairism.

If there isn't a tab (above) with specific referencing advice, check out our general guide to referencing. Remember to follow the correct guidelines for your subject!

Southampton VIrtual Environment (SVE)

The Southampton Virtual Environment gives you access to your University Windows desktop from any device in any location, whether that's at home, on campus, or on the move.

You will have access to all your University files plus the most popular applications.

Virtual Private Networking - VPN

Restriction to campus only use can make working from home extremely difficult, therefore iSolutions have a facility, whereby you can connect to the University's network from home via your current ISP (Internet Service Provider) - "Virtual Private Networking".  For further details please take a look at the iSolutions page on VPN using the link below.

Do remember that whilst connected to the University's network - whether on campus, or at home using VPN - you are still bound by the University's regulations concerning acceptable use of computing facilities.

If you do have any problems or need help in setting up VPN, please contact the iSolutions Service Line:

Institutional Login

Many of the resources which the University Library provides for you can be accessed with the same username and password you use for email, public workstations and Blackboard.

Look out for links containing the words "Institutional access/login", "UK Federation" (or  occasionally "Shibboleth") – all these words are a clue that you can use your normal University login to access a resource.

Direct institutional login

Basically this comes in two forms. Where possible, links to databases from the library website go straight to the University login page (look for separate 'off-campus' links where appropriate).

But in other cases, you may have to select the "UK / UK Federation" first, and then browse or search a list of institutions to select "University of Southampton". (Note: if you can't find us in the list under this name, check under Southampton University.) If you don't find us in the list or there is an error please contact the Periodicals office.

For any problems with your University username and password, please contact iSolutions ServiceLine.
