Finding journals and articles

Almost all recent publications (and many older ones) for journals in Medicine are available online, and can be found through the open access journal browser.

The Journal Browser provides access to more than 11,000 journals available where corresponding authors from Dutch universities and UMCs can publish in open access for free or at a discount. The journals to which the AUMC has access, have been made available via this tool.  

If you can't find the journal or article through the journal browser, just to be sure, look in Libsearch for location VUmc and in the UvA catalogue for location AMC.

NOTE: if the AUMC does not have a license, there is no access to the journal or article.
