The Library subscribes to thousands of academic journals and magazines (print and electronic).

Magazines are usually aimed at a profession, business or interest; and contain articles, news, job adverts, new product reviews, events and advertising.

Academic journals focus on a specific subject area and contain detailed articles, papers and research.  The articles are often peer-reviewed, so have been assessed for quality by experts prior to publication. This makes them good sources of information for your work.

E-Journals & Databases

Electronic journal holdings can be checked in the Library catalogue, where links will be provided if there is an online version. The  journal title search screen may also be checked.   

Many electronic journals are provided in "bundles", packages or specialised subject collections from particular publishers. For example, Sage Premier Collection and Elsevier's Science Direct. Journal databases are online resources which allow you to access the contents of journals ie. articles.

Many also contain conference proceedings, research papers, newspapers, TV programmes and standards. 

The Library subscribes to a large selection of journal databases including several specific to Veterinary Nursing. 

Journal databases can usually be searched by subject and more specifically by author, type of material, article title, publisher, year, language or organisation.

A successful search will provide you with a list of relevant articles which will have references that you can also search for. Many databases provide full-text articles ie. the articles can be read online.
