Description

This group of e-journals covers scholarly information on all subjects, with over 30 million articles from over 10,000 full-text journals.  The overwhelming majority of e-journals to which Trent subscribes are available here.  The journals can be searched or browsed. The updated interface released in January 2014 improves search results and accessibility on a variety of screen sizes.

The content in Scholars Portal is hand-selected by subject specialists at the 21 university libraries that make up the Ontario Council of University Libraries. The content you will find in Scholars Portal comprises the most complete multi-disciplinary database of peer reviewed academic literature available anywhere.

  • With a single-search, find material from the important journals in your field.
  • Track new issues in these journals using RSS feeds.
  •  For each article, see a list of citing articles, related articles, and related books.

Using a single interface you can search or browse to find results in full text e-journals.

Notes
  • Select "Show only content I can access" to limit results to those available at Trent.
  • Sort results by "Relevance" or "Most Recent".
  • See the top-cited journals in a discipline under "Browse".
  • Add citations to a personal list for exporting into RefWorks, quick bibliography, or emailing.

The Scholars Portal project is funded by the Ontario Information Infrastructure (part of the Ontario Council of University Libraries), and it is hosted at the University of Toronto. It is available at all Ontario Universities.
