If you're looking for a specific journal you can search by title from the VIU Library homepage by clicking the Journals tab and then entering the title, or part of the title, in the search bar and clicking search.
If you're not looking for a specific title you can browse journals by subject by navigating to the VIU Library homepage, clicking the Journals tab, and then clicking Browse journals.
You can then select a subject area and a sub-category to browse related journals.
After selecting a subject and sub-category you can limit your results to Peer Reviewed and/or Open Access.
When reviewing results you can find relevant information about each journal, including what issues of the journal VIU Library has access to and where to access them, underneath the journal's title. You can also search some journals directly from the results page by entering keywords into the search bar below the journal information.
If you need a particular journal article, but the VIU Library doesn't have subscription access to the journal (or the journal volume/issue/year) you need, you can request a copy of the article on interlibrary loan - meaning the VIU Library will try to get the article for you from another library. Note, it can take between 3-5 days to get access to a journal article and not all articles are available through interlibrary loan.
