How to use Journal Search

Red River College subscribes to a large number of journals both independently and through our extensive database collections. Print journals are housed within the Library, and eJournals are journals and magazines that are displayed and viewed online. Staff and students can access these materials through their college account. 

Don’t forget to check out the related guides for similar topics and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Journal Search Results










From the results page, you can use the filters to limit by ejournals (available online) or print journals (Physical items in the library).  You can also see from the records if they are available online or if they have a physical location. Peer-Reviewed journals are also clearly identified on this page as well as Open Access journals.

Click on the journal title for more information and options.

Searching within eJournals

















1. Click on the Details for the Journal (This works for both electronic journals and print journals)

2. Enter your search terms in the Search Box













3. The Journal search box will move your query to a populated Advanced Search field.

In the example, we can see that the ISSN - which identifies the journal we are wanting to search - has been entered. This prevents any other journal from responding.
