Frequently Asked Questions


Why can't I get full text access to a journal?

Our answer:

If you cannot find the full text of an article it may be because we do not subscribe to that particular journal. Most databases will allow you to view abstracts, but you will only be able to view the full text of journals we have subscribed to and paid for. The database description for each database gives information about the full text coverage of each database.

Search the A-Z Journals List to find out if the full text of a journal is available, the database it is in, and the years available.

To avoid frustration use the Summon Search as Summon will direct you to articles which are available in full text.
