Journal A-Z

The Journals A-Z tab, available on the MultiSearch Navigation bar, provides you with access to our full journal holdings in an alphabetically sorted list. It can be searched by keyword or by ISSN, as well as being browsed manually.

Finding a Journal by Title

You can search for journals by their title. This can be done by entering the full title or any significant parts of the title (as keywords). If you have used the full title and it does not turn up a result it is recommended to try searching with just the most important keywords from the title.

To restrict your search from a general keyword search to searching only the journal titles of our holdings use the pre-filters below the search bar to change the material type to Journals and the field to in the title. You can either enter keywords or use the pre-filters again to change the search type to with my exact phrase.

It has been fairly common for journals to undergo name changes as publishers or editors change. Your search may bring up other journals that are seemingly unrelated. The record that matches should contain information about previous or subsequent titles.

Finding a Journal on a Subject

You can search for journals by their subject. This can be done by entering the full title or any significant parts of the title (as keywords). If you have used the full title and it does not turn up a result it is recommended to try searching with just the most important keywords from the title.

To restrict your search from a general keyword search to searching only the subjects of journals in our holdings use the pre-filters below the search bar to change the material type to Journals and the field to in subject. You can either enter keywords or use the pre-filters again to change the search type to with my exact phrase.
