University Library


Aalborg University Library has a vast collection of journals - both printed and online.

Use our search engine

You can search for the journals in Primo using title or subject. If the journal is available online, "Online Access" is stated in the record. If not, look under the tab "Locations/Request" for location of paper copy. In some cases, the library has both paper and online edition. If you are looking for a specific article, please read on under the heading "Articles/Papers" above.

Locate journals through databases

You can also access a journal via a database. A number of the databases that the library subscribes are bibliographic - i.e. they contain references to articles, but no full text. In such cases, we strive to include the AUB Link function that will let  you know whether the library gives access to the article or not.
When you click on the AUB Link, the system checks our e-JournalFinder to see if the library subscribes to the journal in which the article is published.It is the same type of functionality that you can activate in e.g. Google Scholar.

Use e-journalfinder to locate e-journals

You can use the library's e-JournalFinder to locate e-journals. Search for the journal title in the A-Z list, which contains all the journals that the library subscribes to, as well as free journals on the Internet - e.g. Open Access journals. You can browse by subject in e-JournalFinder, or look up the journal on the publisher's list. Another option is using Citation Linker, where you can search for a specific article. Enter the article details and you will find out quickly whether or not the library has an online or paper copy.

Once you have located the journal in question, it may be that the library has online access via more than one distributor. In such cases, please notice which distributor gives access to the relevant edition (year).
The example blow is a case in point: Older copies of "International Journal of American Linguistics" should be accessed via ”JSTOR Arts and Sciences 7”.

Search for journals in a database

Another way of accessing a journal, is to search in a database. The library has several bibliographic databases - containing references only! These databases usually have an AUB Link icon that will take you to the e-JournalFinder to see if the library has access to the journal in question. You can use the same function in e.g. Google Scholar.

Move on to journal databases

The library's collection of e-journals is made available through a nuber of different publishers and suppliers. We recommend that  you search for a particular journal in the Primo database. However, it is possible to access the journal via the library's list of publishers and suppliers too.

Move on to journal databases

Move on to e-JournalFinder

Feel free to use the e-JournalFinder, if you need a general view of the library's e-journal collection. Read the description above. The journals can be sorted by subject if necessary.
