Articles and journals

To search for articles and journals, you can use several different services, which provide either the material in full text or a reference to an article in a printed journal.



LUBsearch is the starting point for searching for all material to which Lund University has access. Here you can find articles, journals, databases and e-books. Large parts of the material are available in full text; with your student or LU account you can access it from wherever you are.

Electronic journals

Use LUBsearch to search for articles. If you are looking for a specific journal, you can search in LUBcat to get a link to the journal’s website. You can also find the electronic journals in the ePublications connected to LUBsearch.

Printed journals

LUBcat, the library catalogue, lists the printed journals which are available at Lund University libraries, with information on where they are located. You cannot search for individual articles in LUBcat. If you want to search only for Swedish articles, you can search the databases Retriever Research, for example. If you are searching for articles in English, use LUBsearch. If the article is not available at Lund University, you can search for the journal in Libris and then request an interlibrary loan.

Single articles published in our printed journals can be requested via the Lubito service. Search for the journal and fill in a request form to receive the article via email in PDF format.


Printed issues of journals at Sambib, from 2008 onwards, are available in open shelves on the second floor in the library. Older journal issues are placed in the stacks and must be requested via LUBcat. Requested journals can be picked up at the information desk – journals are not sent from one library to another. At Sambib the requested material is available for pick-up at the latest by 12:00 the following weekday. Journals must be read in the library – they cannot be taken home.

Daily newspapers

There are several ways of searching for articles in daily newspapers. For more information see Lund University Library’s web page on newspapers.
