Finding journal articles using SOLO Covers SOLO only (not OU eJournals) Incorporates Electronic Legal Deposit
What are journals and why use them? Regular publications (e.g. weekly, monthly, quarterly, annual) “Peer reviewed” – articles are selected by experts Look at specific topics in detail Report on the most up to date research and ideas
Understanding citations to journal articles on your reading list Author(s) names Year of publication Article title Journal title Volume, issue and page nos Understanding journal “citations” will help you to find articles quickly Some tools such as SOLO require you to search by Journal Title.
Where to search for journals SOLO “Oxford Collections” is the most comprehensive tool for finding journals. It covers Oxford’s print and electronic journals SOLO “Articles and more” covers a selection of electronic journal articles but is not comprehensive and omits some key journals
e.g. Searching for Frank, M. & Reinisch, J. (2014) ‘Refugees and the Nation-State in Europe, 1919–59’, Journal of Contemporary History, vol. 49, no. 3, pp. 477-490. Search SOLO “Oxford Collections” by journal title (not article title or author) Search SOLO “Articles & More” by article title, author or keywords How to search for journal articles Alternatively use SOLO “Articles & More” but remember that this is less comprehensive than SOLO “Oxford Collections ”
Searching for a journal e.g. Searching for Frank, M. & Reinisch, J. (2014) ‘Refugees and the Nation-State in Europe, 1919–59’, Journal of Contemporary History, vol. 49, no. 3, pp. 477-490.. Search by journal title There will often be more than one version of the journal. Click “View all…” to see them

Viewing the e-journal Clicking “View online” opens the “Find it @ Oxford” window listing databases that include your chosen journal. Check the date coverage beneath each database and compare this to the publication date in the article citation on your reading list. Once you have found a database that covers the correct date click on the title connect.
Restricted items on SOLO Some items on SOLO have a “restrictions apply” notice e.g. These are items which the Libraries receive via “Electronic Legal Deposit”
Legal Deposit The Bodleian Libraries are a “Legal Deposit” Library Legally entitled to a copy of every item published in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Historically this has allowed us to amass huge printed collections In 2013 legal deposit was extended to printed items such as ejournals Picture: Bodleian Libraries closed stacks
Electronic Legal Deposit Restrictions The Legal Deposit Act 2003 imposes restrictions on electronic items received under Legal Deposit: Items may only be read on Library owned computers within the Bodleian Libraries Saving, copying and pasting is forbidden Each item may only be viewed by one person at a time
Avoiding restricted items In most cases you can avoid restricted items by choosing carefully from your SOLO results Available both on and off campus Digital copying and copy and paste permitted within copyright rules Available to multiple people at once Available from Bodleian Libraries’ computers only No digital copying / copy and paste Each item may only be viewed by one person at a time
