GoogleScholar is a subset of Google that acts as an international index to articles, reports, theses etc. Google has no rights to make any item freely available unless already available but publishers ahve collaborated with Google and if UKZN pays for access to a journal it will be accessible via Google Scholar.

  • If the journal is available online, access details will be provided showing where the journal appears and the time coverage.

If you do not know in which journals articles appear, search a database - click on the databases tab at the top of this page.

If you are working from off campus you will need to authenticate yourself on the off campus option.
