Download any article in a journal subscribed to by UCL for free. For other journals, Ingenta will ask you to pay a fee. Occasionally the electronic subscription runs out and you will be asked to pay for something which you should have free access to. If this happens, check with the library desk and then try again a few hours later or the next day.
IngentaConnect can be accessed offsite. If you are using a computer which is not on the UCL network, you will be asked to enter your UCL userid and password to access the resource.
This site contains downloadable and printable versions of papers published in the following journals, from their very first issue until a few years ago:Ethics, Journal of Philosophy, Journal of Symbolic Logic, Mind, Nous, Philosophical Perspectives, Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophical Review, Philosophy & Phenomenological Research and Philosophy & Public Affairs.
JSTOR has a 'moving wall' giving you access to journals up to 5 years ago in some cases and 7 years ago in others. You have two options to download - low or high quality. Low quality is difficult to read on screen, but acceptable on a printout. High quality is similar to photocopy standard and is readable on screen. These articles can be printed out, presently free of charge, in the College computer clusters.
