A note about Oxford Journals

If you cannot access an article in Oxford Journals, you may be able to access it in LexisLibrary. You can log into LexisLibrary here. Once you have logged in, search for the article.


Some of your readings are in journals which are managed by Oxford University Press. You may have trouble accessing them from Summon search. This is because we no longer subscribe to them on the Oxford Journals platform. But don’t worry – you can still access them through other databases, such as LexisLibrary and HeinOnline.

If you cannot find or access an article using Summon, you can find out which database it is in using our A-Z Journals list.

Enter the name of the journal, and it will tell you which databases it is in and which years our subscription covers. Sometimes a journal will be available in more than one database.

You can then access the database by clicking on the link in the A-Z Journals list, or from your programme gateway.

Please note that two of your essential journals, Refugee Survey Quarterly and the Journal of Refugee Studies, are still on the Oxford Journals platform. You can still search and access their articles using Summon, or you can access them directly from your programme gateway.
