Q. Can I access journals and e-resources after graduating?

A.       Due to licensing restrictions we are unable to offer remote access to our online journals and e-resources for alumni.

However, we are able to provide on-site access to most resources for users who have a device which can connect to the wi-fi. This is just one of the many benefits of having an alumni card.

You may also be able to access paywalled scholarly articles at your local public library through the Access to Research scheme and anyone can access quality open access publishing through Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

We also recommend the browser plugins Unpaywall and Open Access Button. Quite often authors put a copy of their work in their institutional repository as well as in the journal it's published in and these plugins will tell you if there is a free legal copy available online. We wrote a blog which explains more about this here.
