An ejournal is an online academic magazine. Published regularly, they contain academic articles (the latest research), and are stored in databases. Ejournals can be searched directly by using the university's Journals Finder tool. This is usually done when you know the details of a particular article you would like to read (for example, one recommended in a reading list).

Your university credentials will be required to access university's Journals Finder tool.

Open the university’s Library Catalogue and select 'eJournals'. This will take you to the ejournal finder tool. Enter the name of the ejournal you wish to access and select search.

The search results will list every ejournal with a title similar to the one entered in the search field. Select the one you wish to access. It is worth noting any access embargos applied to the ejournal. For example, Ulster University students have full text access to all articles published in Harvard Business Review since 1922.

To access Harvard Business Review, select the Business Source Complete link. This is the database that houses the ejournal and will take you to the relevant page.

All issues of the ejournal are arranged in reverse chronological order. Select the publication year and then select an issue.

You will now see a list of all articles within the selected issue. Select the full text link to open an article.
