To search for a journal article you will need to access the Articles and More section of StarPlus. This will search a variety of resources, including journal articles, conference papers and open access books. The default search option is the Primo Central database. The University Library will not have a subscription to all the material indexed in Primo Central.
To search type the article title in the search box: From your results list click View It to see the full text of materials available online:
If you are looking for a phrase, use quotation marks to make your search more specific: e.g. "global warming".StarPlus will search for the whole phrase rather than each separate word.
If you're looking for a specific journal article, there are two options:
- Use the Articles and More search and combine the author surname with words or phrases from the article title, e.g. Metcalf "paying for university".
- If you don’t find the article you want, try typing the journal title into University Collections search to check the availability, in print and/or electronically, of the journal, e.g. National Institute Economic Review.
