Conceptual searching across more than 600 journals

Jisc JournalArchives is a powerful research tool with 'conceptual search' functionality. This means that when you conduct a search it also looks for items with similar conceptual meanings and can identify previously unavailable links between documents. You can get started by conducting a quick keyword search or use the full search to submit a more complex enquiry.
