Are all journals subscribed by the Library available electronically?
Are e-journals exactly the same as their print counterparts?
Are there any journals available in electronic form only?
Yes, here are two examples.
How do I know whether a journal is available electronically?
Why is registration required for some journals but not the others?
It depends on the means of access control used by the publishers. When access is controlled by personal username and password, registration is required. Also, some publishers require users to register so that they may provide personalized services to individual users such as personal journal list, saved searches, email alerting service, etc.
What to do if additional software is required to view the full text?
When the format of the full text is in a format other than plain text or HTML, such as PDF or PostScripts, you need to download the appropriate software from the Web to view the full text. Usually the software can be downloaded freely from the Internet. Some popular plug-in software such as Acrobat Reader has been installed on the CityU network.
Can I access e-journals off campus?
Current CityU staff and students can access most of the subscribed e-journals off campus. Please refer to the Library web page "Remote Access to Library Electronic Resources".
