If you want to browse specific journals, you can find them using Journal search.

  1. Follow the relevant link for your organisation; these are located under Search | Rapu on the Library home page.

  2. You can browse titles alphabetically, but because of the large number of titles it is quicker to type in the title, or a keyword if you’re not sure of the exact title.

  5. This should take you directly to the journal page on the publisher’s website. The table of contents for the most recent issue will usually be displayed on the screen. To browse previous issues, you will need to look for a link called 'back issues', 'all issues', 'archive' or similar. This can be located at various places on the screen but is often in the menu on the left hand side.
  6. It is rarely possible to download a whole issue of a journal as a single PDF, but you can browse the contents pages and select any articles of interest to download. Different journals have different interfaces, if you have any problems and you need help you can contact us.
