There are 3 ways to find journal articles:-

1. You can search on the Library website main search by selecting the 'Find books and articles' option. Make sure that the 'Find Full Text' option is selected (this is the default). You can also select the 'Academic Journals' source type to restrict results to titles from journals (please be aware this may potentially eliminate some journal article results due to inaccurate metadata from third party suppliers and databases). 

2. Alternatively, you can select the 'Advanced Search' option underneath the main search box on the Library website. The default is again set to 'Full text online only'. 

3. If you know the name of the journal which the article you require is in, but perhaps not the volume/issue details, you can go directly to the journal by selecting 'Electronic Journals' in the 'Find' menu on the Library website. Search for the journal title, click on 'Full Text Access', then click on the relevant platform. If you are unsure which year the article was published, you may need to look this up or search within the journal on the publisher's website.
