Journals and ejournals

Journal content can be found by searching Discovery  or a number of our other databases for the topic or article title you are looking for.

If you are looking for a specific journal title you can also look for this on Discovery.  But if you’re not sure of the exact title, the Publications search page on Discovery will list the ejournal titles we have that match your results. You can normally then search the articles within that publication or follow the links to browse the issues.

The Publications page also allows you to browse our ejournals by subject area.

Print journals are not currently included on the Publications page, so you will need to check the Library Catalogue  or Discovery  to find details of our print journal holdings.

If the University of Portsmouth Library does not subscribe to the journal you want to access, Portsmouth City Council Library Service also provides free online access to a range of journal articles via the Access to Research programme. You can search for which articles and journals are available through Access to Research anywhere, but you will need to visit a Portsmouth City Council public library to access the full text. Other public libraries signed up to this service are listed here:
