Library journals

Google Scholar

Search for academic materials including journal articles, peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports.

When you are connected to the campus network, Google Scholar automatically interrogates University of York library systems and provides links to full-text articles from subscribed e-journals. When working on another network, you will need to edit your Scholar settings:  in the 'Library links' area,  add 'University of York (UK)'.

Bibliographic databases

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

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.
