HKUST E-Journal Database

The E-Journal Database is a sub-set of the Library Catalog. All electronic journals included in the Catalog can be found here; that covers:

  • titles the Library subscribes to via publishers, and are accessible via the Internet
  • titles accessible via aggregator databases such as ProQuest, EBSCOhost and LexisNexis
  • a small number of high quality titles that are available on the Internet for free

For various reasons, titles from certain databases are not included; examples are China InfoBank and WiseNews.

The E-Journal Database contains records and access paths of journals. If you are looking for articles of particular topics, use indexing databases of the appropriate subjects.

Find a Journal

Use the "Browse Lists" or search by keywords in Title, Subject, Publisher, Call Number or URL.


  • "macromolecular rapid communications" finds the journal "Macromolecular rapid communications"
  • time and series finds records containing "time" and "series"
  • nanostructure or nanotechnology finds occurrences of either term
  • springer finds journals published by Springer Verlag
  • computer* finds occurrences of "computer", "computers", "computerize", etc.
  • computer automatically represents related terms such as "computing" and "computers"
  • qa* finds all journals with call numbers starting with QA. This is a good way to retrieve a list of titles in a broad subject area. Check the Classification Outline for call number ranges of different subjects.
