E-Journals - where do I start?

Thousands of journal articles are available to you on the internet using your NHS Athens username and password. Please see our Athens page for information on how to register.

Once you have your Athens log in details, the best place to see what's available is via our Journal Listing (Full Text Finder) which enables you to search for a specific journal.

The NHS currently has in place an agreement with the Copyright Licensing Agency. The agreement sets out the extent and nature of copying that is permissible. Full information about the NHS agreement and links to guidance are available at the CLA website.

Can't find the article you need?

We can try to obtain articles you need from other libraries and sources that we have access to. All you need to do is to send us a completed, signed request form for each article you require.

One last thing....Copyright law prevents us from supplying you with more than two articles from the same issue of any journal so please bear that in mind when you're placing article requests!
