Accessing Academic Journals

Some tips for students of English Studies and translation at the Universitat de València on how to access information about academic journals, and the full text of articles published by academic journals.

getting references |  accessing texts |  lists of journals

How to get references to articles:

In general, use the web search engine Google Scholar (Google Académico), which indexes full-text academic literature of various disciplines.

Mendeley (a free reference manager and academic social network) can also be useful in providing references.

A more specific bibliography is the MLA International bibliography, to which the Universitat de València is subscribed. Use VPN to turn your computer into a terminal of our university's network, go to Servei de Biblioteques <http://biblioteca.uv.es/>, then to "Bases de Dades", then to "Humanitats", and scroll down until you find MLA International Bibliography

Unfortunately, our university is not subscribed to the Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature, published by the Modern Humanities Research Association

You can also use  Dialnet (portal de contenidos bibliográficos)

Through VPN you can also search through digital libraries and databases available through <trobes.uv.es/>
- search for "JSTOR" as a title in <trobes.uv.es/>, and follow the links. (JSTOR is a multidisciplinary digital library of academic journals)
- search for "Project MUSE" as a title in <trobes.uv.es/> (Project MUSE, an online database of academic journals and electronic books on the Humanities and Social Sciences)
- similarly with Proquest Central

There are specialised bibliographies, such as the World Shakespeare Bibliography Online 

How to access the full text of articles.

Once you have selected a reference from your previous search, see if that journal is in our university library : <trobes.uv.es/>
The journal may be physically available (in the Humanities library, they are on the third floor), or may accessible electronically. In this case, use VPN to turn your computer into a terminal as you may come accress references accessible through JSTOR, Project MUSE, Proquest Central, and similar databases or libraries
