Master of Public Administration - Faculty Guide: Journal Locator

Journal Locator

Journal Locator allows you to search the library's journals and newspaper holdings to determine if we have access to a specific periodical title. For instance, if you want to know if we subscribe to Times Educational Supplement and what years we have access to, you can do so using Journal Locator.

You can access Journal Locator from the link in the left side menu of the Library's homepage. 

Library Homepage highlighting Journal Locator Link


Journal Locator allows you to search for journals and newspapers by their title, ISSN/ISBN, or subject. N.B. If you're searching for journals by subject, it is best to use the Browse by Discipline option below the search box instead. 

If the periodical title is available, it will show up in the search results. From here you can see the full text access available from the library. It is important to pay attention to the dates and sources when determining if we own specific issues/years. In the example below you can see the library has print copies of the Times Educational Supplement available from 1965-1977. There are also two online versions available - one through Nexis Uni which has access from 1999 until the most recent issue and one from Research Library which has access from 2008 until six months ago. Research Library in this case will always be six months behind the most current issue. Clicking on any of the links will bring you to the full text journal in the specified database. 


To browse the titles available in a specific discipline, select one of the disciplines in the Browse by Discipline box on the Journal Locator homepage. Once you've selected a discipline you can further refine your search using the options in the left side menu.
