Several Ways to Find Information
Regardless of how comprehensive a database is, if the information is not searchable and easy to retrieve, then it is simply a depot of data without value.
To this end, we index the articles to include full bibliographic information, inclusive of citations. In addition, each article includes an abstract and the main keyword list. When you thus retrieve bibliographic information, you can gain immediate insight as to the relevance of the titles.
We offer various methods to locate African journal titles for your research purposes. Such include, but are not limited to:
- Search across all content in the collection
- Advanced search
- Search a specific collection
- Search within a journal
- Browse by topic
- Use the top-of-page structure for browsing by collection
- Use the alphabetical index of journals to find specific journal titles
The easy-to-use search bar can be used to find authors, journal titles, article titles, or all documents that pertain to the specific keyword phrase. For highly accurate search results, use the advanced search option with Boolean operators to include only results where a specific combination of terms are found in the documents or titles. You can use filter options to filter results according to date range, author, and more. Once at a journal title, you can search for research information relevant to your topic in the particular journal.
If you simply want to gain an overview of the titles available, use the collections, journal title index, or topic groupings to find your way through the collection.
With a comprehensive range of African journal titles in the Open Access part of the collection, you already have free access to highly relevant and superbly researched articles – simply register as a user. This is a hassle-free process. Once registered, you can select Open Access articles to download. The articles can be downloaded in PDF format.
The alternative is to subscribe to a specific journal title, selected titles, a collection, or the entire collection. The subscription gives you access to the full-text articles in all the journal titles or collections to which you have subscribed.
The pay-per-view option is an affordable means to access specific articles for once-off or occasional research. For long-term, regular, or multiple-topic research, we recommend the subscription option. This is, by far, the most cost-effective solution for companies, law firms, medical centres, colleges, and academic researchers.
