Find a specific journal

Search for the title of the journal in the Library catalogue, NewCat+.

Use quotation marks to make your search more specific. Example: "medical journal of australia".

If the library has the journal, the catalogue record for the journal will be in the results list. It will include details of years that are available, and for journals which are available online there will be a link to the journal database.


Found an article from a journal we don't have?

If Newcastle doesn't have the article you want, request it from another library using our Get It Service.

For more details go to our Borrowing from other libraries webpage.


Abbreviated journal titles

Medline and some other databases use abbreviations for the title of journals.  Use the NLM Catalogue to locate the full title
