Searching for journals & ejournals

To identify key resources in your discipline refer to the relevant library guide. The A-Z electronic resources list is another option for finding these.
Library Search for finding
Using journal databases
Journal databases which index articles have their own search interfaces. These databases are often discipline specific. You can find the links to the Library’s journal databases by searching or browsing the list of electronic resources that the Library subscribes to and open access resources that the Library recommends.
Content on the internet
Open access journals are available for free on the Internet. Most academic journals are not available without payment. The Library’s electronic resources list and Library Search include recommended open access journals as well as the high quality content that is available to Bond students and staff through the Library’s subscriptions. To find quality search results start with the Library’s resources rather than a general search engine and save time.
Google Scholar is an exception to most Internet search engines as it indexes scholarly literature only. If you connect to Google Scholar through this Bond-specific link students and staff will have the added benefit of easy connection through to the Library’s licensed content.
