New Academic Staff: Finding Articles in Journals

Get the most out of Google scholar

You can use Google Scholar to link to our electronic journals.  If you see a link to full text at Middlesex then you can access the paper.  If the paper is not held by Middlesex, please use Inter Library Loan to get a copy. 

Off site this only works if preferences are set to search Middlesex University Library.  

For more information on searching Google and Google Scholar, see our slides on Effective internet searching.

If you are asked to login this is your usual Middlesex Username and Password, which you would use to login to a PC when on campus at the University.

Open Access Journals

Finding information in journals and magazines

Middlesex University subscribes to a large number of databases in which you find specific articles on a subject. The information you can find includes full text journal articles, conference proceedings, illustrations and photographs.

On campus you can normally login directly to these resources. Off campus you should first login to myUniHub and then on the My University page follow the links in the My Library box. This will ensure your home computer has the correct cookies and that you are automatically logged in to the resources.

  • Other electronic Resources    
  • Summon:  Summon searches most of our databases at the same time and the library catalogue.
  • Web of Science:  See how papers have been cited by others and then track those citations to other linked works.

For help using our databases, please contact your Subject Liaison Librarian.
