Your online guide to finding resources for your research

Finding journals


Search e-journals



Not all our journals are on BrowZine however you can check YorSearch to definitively see if we subscribe to a particular title.

Google Scholar

Search for academic publications: journal articles, peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports.  Not everything you find is free-to-access.

When you're connected to the campus network, Google Scholar interfaces with University of York Library holdings, and provides a link to the full-text article where available.

You can set this up on any network:  from the Google Scholar settings page, choose Library Links.  Search for 'York', select 'University of York UK' from the list, and then Save.

Bibliographic databases

A bibliographic database is a searchable source of comprehensive information about publications: books, journal articles, working papers and more.

Some bibliographic databases incorporate the full text of the publications indexed.  Others interface with the Library's directory of subscriptions, to provide easy access to the full text on the host website wherever possible.
