RUQuest (English): Journal search

This guide is currently being updated to correspond to the new interface of RUQuest. Some terms and screenshots might reflect the older version.

Journal search

Via the University Library homepage: Click the tab Journals

Quick search: you can search all journals using title words. For a more specific search, use the search key tk. Example: tk:chemistry 
You can also find journals by their ISSN via Advanced search

Some journals can't be found using abbreviations, e.g. PNAS.

Use distinctive words instead:
proceedings national sciences for Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences


Browsing through eJournals A-Z

Click on the Library Links button on the top right-hand side and select eJournals A-Z. You can browse the alphabetical list for the journal title or search for the journal title or ISSN using the "search box".
