NHS users from UCLH can access ejournals in the following ways:
- NHS ejournals - your primary source, access from anywhere using your OpenAthens account
- UCL ejournals for NHS users - accessible in the library only, via the UCL libraries' walk-in service
- Article request from UCL ejournals for NHS users currently registered with the library - via online form.
NHS ejournals - NHS ejournals are provided by Health Education England, through national and regional NHS agreements, plus some titles made available by your local home Library. They are available to any member of NHS staff both at work and at home using an NHS OpenAthens account. You must log in with an OpenAthens account to view all the journals. Contact your home library if you have any queries about access.
UCL ejournals for NHS users - users from NHS Trusts associated with UCL have access to a range of UCL-funded ejournals, in addition to the NHS ejournals. These can be accessed by using a walk-in computer (called an EAP) located in one of the UCL Libraries (view the Terms of Access). Queen Square users - have access to the walk-in list of UCL ejournals at the Queen Square Library; you can also find out about walk-in facilities at other UCL library sites.
During the Covid-19 outbreak, existing NHS library members can request an electronic copy of journal articles normally available via the UCL Library Explore Access Points. Please ensure that you only request articles after checking that you do not have full text access via your NHS OpenAthens account. If after searching for the journal title through NHS OpenAthens you find you have no access, please check the UCL Library catalogue Explore using the ‘Journal titles’ filter from the drop down menu. UCL Library Services should be able to provide you with a PDF copy of most articles available in our online journals collection for the duration of these special measures. To access the request form, please visit UCL electronic resource request form.
