QMUL offers students and staff a range of books, journals, databases and media in electronic formats. These can be found through the library home page using the search box and the E-journals & Databases list and can be accessed on or off campus on a variety of devices.
Sciencedirect: For links that result in the SD-009 error there are a few known workarounds to get to the full text: (1) use the browse journal feature and navigate to the content, or (2) on the full results menu try the “Search CrossRef for a DOI link” option. While not great workarounds these will in most cases lead to the full text. If you still cannot access the article please send details of the article to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look into the problem. Proquest expect to have a fix for the issue by the 21st.
Browser Error with off-campus access (mostly Chrome and Safari): The error message is due to your browser flagging a concern over the encryption level used by our server security certificate. We are implementing a change that will resolve this. For Chrome: In the mean time you can still access the library resources by clicking on “ADVANCED” (below the error message) and selecting “Proceed to…” – once you have done this for the first time you will not need to again (unless you clear your browser cookies). For Safari the equivalent actions should give access.
Queen Mary journal of intellectual property: There are intermittent issues with off-campus access to this title. The publishers are working to resolve the problem.
