If you want to find an individual article within an e-journal, you should use the Library's main catalogue search on the Library Homepage.

Or, if you want to check to see whether the Library subscribes to a particular journal title, you should use the searchable Electronic Journals directory

You can use this A-to-Z site to find and access more than 100,000 full-text e-journals, by searching for the name of the journal itself (e.g. "British Journal of Social Work"). If the Library has access to a particular e-journal then it should be listed here, along with dates of full-text coverage.

All e-journals are accessible from off campus, as well as from University computers and over campus wi-fi.

To access an e-journal you may need to log in using your University account ID and password.


It is also possible to search for journal articles using public academic search engines (e.g. Google Scholar).

However you should be aware that:

  • Public search engines will include results for articles and journals to which the University of Lincoln does not have full-text access – you may need to cross-reference with the Electronic Journals directory, above.
  • You may have to follow a different process to sign in to read the journal article, especially if you are off campus.

If you have any questions about e-journals please contact the Library, or speak to your Academic Subject Librarian.
