Connecting to ejournals from off-campus

1. You know the article details – ie author, title, journal, volume, page numbers
You must link to the ejournal from the Ejournal Portal on the Library’s website. Go to, choose Ejournals, then Ejournal Portal. You can use the alphabetical list to link to the journal, or you can search for the journal title

2. You are searching the Ovid (Medline, PsycInfo, EBMR) or EBSCO (CINAHL, Medline) databases
Click on the Fulltext@RCSI? button and follow the article link to the full-text.

3. You are searching PubMed
Use PubMed to identify your articles and then go to the Ejournal Portal on the Library’s website (, choose Ejournals, then Ejournal Portal) to link to the full text. Linking directly to the publishers’ websites from PubMed won’t allow you access to our ejournal subscriptions.
