E-journal collections

An e-journal collection provides access to a range of journals. Collections will sometimes specialise in a particular subject area, and can usually be keyword-searched; this means you can use them to identify relevant articles in a similar way to bibliographic databases.

They often allow you to search across the full text or abstracts of all the journals from a provider, not just those you have full text access to. Where you do not have access to the full text of an article, a detailed abstract may be available.
