New resource: JISC Journals Archive

Alongside the JISC MediaHub, the JISC e-Collections service also provides access to the JISC Journals Archive (and JISC Historic Books – see separate post). Access to the JISC Journals Archive is by university username and password from on-campus and off-campus. The resource is described as follows:

JISC Journal Archives, part of the JISC eCollections service, consolidates a number of separate journal archives to provide a single platform for simple and fast cross-searching and full-text access across more than 600 journal titles, from: Brill, the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institute of Physics, ProQuest, Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press and the Royal Society of Chemistry.

At present, individual journal title records from the JISC Journals Archives are not available through SFX, but it is intended to add these to Library OneSearch and the ejournal A-Z list as soon as the record set is made available to subscribing institutions.
