Journals, articles and databases

Search JYKDOK database for books, journals, articles and databases


Our journal collection consists of electronic and printed journals acquired by the library or received as legal deposit copies. You can find all the journals in JYKDOK. Information seeking to the academic journals and peer-reviewed articles is usually done in the discipline specific databases.

E-journals acquired by the library are available from workstations on the university’s network or remotely with your JYU username and password.
See more information on our e-book and other e-resources guide  (please look especially at the section 'Instructions for e-journals'). If you want to share a link to an e-journal or article, remember to take into account the requirements of remote access.

The National Library has digitized Finnish journals (as part of Digi: Digitized materials of the National Library online 1771–1929) and in addition some of the library’s journal collections have been stored on microfilm. Microfilm in the Collection Centre can be ordered for use at Lähde.


Search for international articles with discipline specific databases or if you don't have JYUs credentials with JYKDOK’s International e-materials search.

You can search for articles published in Finnish journals and compilations via JYKDOK’s Finnish articles tab. Only some of the articles are available in full text.

You can find information about the topic search from the Library Start-up (choose "Log in as a quest" option to enter without JYU credentials).


Article and reference databases

Most of the databases acquired by the library are article databases. They contain the full-text content of the journals the library subscribes to and, increasingly, e-books. There are also open materials, such as publication archives of other universities, library catalogues and so on.

You can find databases in JYKDOK using the basic search or by using the search function “Browse for databases”.
