Electronic Journal Center

Tutorial for using OhioLINK's Electronic Journal Center to locate scholarly publications


The OhioLINK EJC is accessible from Pfeiffer Library's A-Z database list.  It is located under "E" and labeled as "Electronic Journal Center."  It also has OhioLINK under "alternative name(s) & keywords."  If you are off campus, you may receive and "off-campus access" login screen that has the dragon logo.  If this occurs, you will need to verify your student status by logging in with your student credentials.  Your username is everything before the @ symbol in your Tiffin University email address, and your password is what you use for other TU platforms, such as Self-Service.  Once you log in, you will be taken to the EJC home page.

On the EJC homepage, the search box is the central feature. You can begin by typing in the box that says "Search by keywords, doi, or ISSN."  If you are searching for specific articles, press the enter button or click on the magnifying glass after you type in your search terms.  If you are looking for a particular journal, click the "List of Journals" icon.  You can perform a deeper search using Boolean logic or your natural language by clicking on the "Advanced Search" icon below the search bar. The search will look for your terms in the metadata of the item and the full-text of the item when available.

Upon clicking the "List of Journals" icon on the home page to search, the site will show a list of journals pertaining to your search terms.  You can filter this list using other search terms or by using the filters on the left side of the page.  You can filter the journals by subject, title or ISSN, vendor, publisher, and/or alphabetically.  There is also an option to limit how many search results per page, in the event that the search results are too many to view at once.  Because materials in the EJC are perpetual access, sometimes you want to just browse a particular journal. The video below shows some basic searching tips for locating a journal title to browse.
