Guide to finding journals and ejournals

Check iDiscover to find out whether we hold the journal in paper or electronic form.

  • Paper Journals - Remember to check the years which are available, then contact library staff about ordering the article you need.

  • E-Journals - Use iDiscover, if you’re working on a University (CamDomain) computer/wifi to search for e-journals. If you are “off campus”, use the e-journals@cambridge to search for journals and check whether access is available using your RAVEN password.

  • NHS ATHENS - Log into MyJournals with your NHS ATHENS username and password (register for NHS ATHENS) before you search for the journal you need.

If you can't find an article via the above means, then you may need to use the University's inter-library loan service.
