Journal: how to find a print or e-journal or newspaper

You can find the journals and newspapers UGent libraries have access to via the Ghent University library catalogue lib.ugent.be.

Flemish newspapers and magazines

You can find popular Flemish newspapers and magazines in the database GoPress

  • Search for 'GoPress' in the catalogue and click 'View online'
  • Make an account using your UGent e-mailaddress
  • Now you can access GoPress anytime, anywhere, even outside of the UGent-network

Note: GoPress has an embargo of 2 days. Today's and yesterday's nespapers and magazines are therefore not yet available.

Magazines and newspapers in other languages and academic journals

Our catalogue only lists the periodicals (journals, magazines, newspapers) we have access to. It does not contain all the articles in those periodicals. To find the right bibliographical reference, you should consult a database first.

  • Search for (part of) the title of the periodical
  • Narrow down your search by selecting 'periodical' under 'Type' in the left-hand column

  • The periodical is available online: click on 'View online'. If you are browsing within the UGent network, you can now consult the periodical.

  • The periodical is available in print: click on 'Services' to see what the options are. If you found the article in a database, you can click the SFX-button to check if it is available at UGent in print (or online).
    • If the periodical is on open shelves, you can simply take it off the shelf in the library and read or scan as you prefer
    • If the periodical is in the depot, you can either request a scanned article (video)
    • Or request a consultation of one or more volumes
