How do I search for a specific journal?

Looking for a specific journal quickly? 

Then enter the title of the journal in HanzeWorldCat's search bar, and press enter.

Often, your searched title will now be among the first results!

If that is not the case, you can use filters on the left-hand side to make the search results more specific. For instance, you can filter by type of item, click here on 'Journal, magazine' to search for a journal in our collection.


There is also an advanced search function. You get to this advanced screen by clicking 'Advanced search' below the search button.

On the next screen, you can now specify in more detail what you are looking for. For example, do you know the ISSN (identification number) of the journal? Then you can change the search field to ISSN and enter it after that. You are now more sure that you are going to find the right journal right away.

If you want, you can add more attributes, such as the whole title.

If you don't want to find one specific journal, but just want to browse through the available collection of journals, click on 'Journal List (A-Z)' or 'Journals (BrowZine)' under the 'Links' button. You will see the 'Links' button both in the dark grey menu bar at the top, and at the very bottom of the search overview. Below this box, it explains exactly what BrowZine is and what benefits it has for you.
