All the Library's e-journals are included in the A-Z List and there are also specific journal packages that may be of interest:
Hardcopies of journals published from 1981 to the present are shelved in the Journals Area on the 3rd floor.
The pre-1981 journals are kept in the Library Store - please ask at the Borrower Services Desk on the ground floor if you wish to consult any of them.
Apart from the SAE Engines Series and ESDU, the databases below only contain information about research papers, not the full-text. Use QConnect to link from the database to the full-text of an article.
The databases cover many more items than are available from the Library. If you find a paper which you cannot access online because the library doesn't subscribe to it, it can be requested via the Inter-Library Loans service.
Scopus is the world's largest bibliographic and citation database. A key resource for finding journal articles and conference proceedings in engineering and science disciplines. As well as carrying out literature searches, you can set up current awareness alerts, view citation counts, determine your h-index and assess the impact of journal titles.Scopus tutorials (video / text-only)
Web of Science gives access to citation databases, journals and conference proceedings with current and retrospective coverage in the sciences, engineering, social sciences, arts, and humanities. A good complement to Scopus. Web of Science tutorial (YouTube)
Additional SAE Technical Papers published from 1966 to 2004 are available on microfiche in the McClay Library. Please speak to staff at the Borrower Services Desk to obtain a microfiche and for any assistance you might like in using the mircofiche reader.
Use QCat Article Search to look for full-text articles by title, by author or by topic.
You can search QCat from the Library homepage, or by using the box below.
This will enable you to authenticate with your QUB ID card details and use the databases and e-journals when you are away from campus.
If you find a journal article that is particularly relevant to your research, a simple way of finding similar articles is to look for ones which have referred to your original. You can do this by using these databases:
