Finding journal articles through OxLIP+

The best way to find journal articles using a given reference e.g from your reading list is to use a bibliographic database.

Bibliographic databases contain details of thousands of journal articles, book chapters and dissertations. You can often link directly to a full text copy of an article from such a database.
