E-Journals & Articles

Searching for e-journals by title

You can search for individual e-journal titles in the E-Journals by Subject list. This will show titles available from Library Services alongside the coverage dates and a direct link to the journal.

You can also search for e-journals by title on BrowZine. BrowZine displays journals in a visual layout and provides links to individual articles from each journal issue's content page.

Browsing e-journals

BrowZine also enables you to browse e-journals by subject area, and browse content pages from different journal issues within a single platform.  

For more information on how to use BrowZine, see this FAQ:

Searching for articles in Library Search

Library Search is divided between the ‘Books, e-books and DVDs’ and ‘Articles and more’ search options. 'Articles and more' searches most of our e-journal collections and some online resources.

Articles can be found using the basic and advanced searches. The basic search defaults to full-text results. You can also search citations from some external databases by unchecking the 'Full Text' limiter in advanced search.


Library Search will try to link directly to the article but this is not always possible, for example for some open access journals. In such cases you will be directed to the journal homepage, where you will need to search for the article again.

Please note that searching for a journal title on the main Library Search will most likely not give you a result. Library Search is best used for article titles or keywords. If you want to search for a journal by title, use the E-Journal by Subject page.

Accessing articles using LibKey

Libkey Nomad is a browser extension that can help you quickly find online Library resources like journal articles. When you are searching for resources online, the LibKey button will appear if the Library has a subscription to the resource, or if an open access (free) version is available.

Requesting new e-journals and articles

If you'd like access to an article or issue of a journal that we don't currently subscribe to, you can request an inter-library loan via our 'Get it for me' service.

Members of academic staff can request new subscriptions. If you are a student, ask a lecturer, your tutor or a course leader to email QMUL libraries on your behalf. More information can be found on our subscription pages. 

Senate House

Queen Mary students can access some additional e-resources from Senate House Library. Information on how to register as a member can be found on their website.
