Finding Journals

Library Skills

Finding Journals

The Library has a large range of journals that are available for you to access and use as a student, researcher or staff member of RGU.

Most of the time you will be using databases to search for a full range of journal articles on a topic but sometimes you may want to find out if we have a specific journal title, what years we have, if it is online or in print and how you can access it.

Finding Individual Journals

All of our print journals, and the majority of our eJournals, can be found via LibrarySearch. There are two ways of doing this which are described below.

Please remember that some journals can only be found via the database/collection they are part of, so as well as using the options on this page, please also remember to try searching the library databases.

In addition, this page also gives information about accessing print journals and using the Browzine tool to browse eJournals.

Using the Refining Options

You can also search for the journal via the LibrarySearch homepage.

Instead of looking through all the results, you can use the filters on the left-hand side to narrow down to Journals.

If we have a subscription to it, you will find the journal in the results list, and will see what years are available and access it if it is available online.


Browzine is a browsing tool for many of the Library's eJournal subscriptions. It allows visual browsing of journal issues and organic content discovery. Browzine can be found and accessed via the Library’s database list.

On the Browzine homepage, you can browse subject areas or use the search box:
