Answer

 To find out if we subsribe to a digital version of a journal, follow the instructions outlined below:

1.  Begin at the UCL Libraries website www.ucl.ac.uk/library
2.  Click on the Electronic Resources link on the LH-side of the page
3.  This will bring you to the E-resources @ UCL webpage
4.  Click on the E-journals link on the RH-side of the page

5.  Type in the title of journal
6.  Click on the 'Exact' radio button (or the most appropriate one)
7.  If the library subscribes to the journal, the results will appear at the bottom of the screen.
8.  Click on SFX@UCL next.

9.  This will take you to the page which provides routes to get to the full text. 
10.  Select the appropriate link.


Tip!  Please note that if the eJournal is not available for the years you require, you may want to check for print holdings in the UCL Libraries or the holdings in other academic libraries - see links at the bottom of the page which include the link to the UCL Institute of Education Library.


Tip!  It is best to follow the steps outlined above than to try and access an eJournal from a publisher's website.  This route allows you to authenticate using your UCL username and password at the appropriate page using the 'Single Sign-on' option.
