Locate Full-Text Journals & Magazines Using Journal Finder

The ​Journal Finder tool will identify journals, magazines, and newspapers to which Hackney Library has full text access.

  • Type in the name of the journal or magazine whose articles you want to read in the full-text (for example, Nutritional Neuroscience).  Journal Finder will then tell you whether or not we have full-text access to that publication, and if so, in what database and for what dates.
