How to access Harvard Business Review
The University of Manchester Library has changed its Electronic Journals A to Z list so this is a revised version of “How to access Harvard Business Review” – an essential skill for all.
You find an interesting Harvard Business Review (HBR) article on the web and want to read the full-text.
You have found your article – keep title, author, year and issue (i.e. the bibliographic details) to hand.
University of Manchester students and staff do not have to pay but you do have to access HBR via a journals database.
If you are accessing from a mobile device you can use the EBSCOhost app.
Using a browser, follow these steps:
1. Goto the e-journals A-to-Z list.
(For example goto www.mbs.ac.uk/library select e-Resources – Electronic Journals and then A-Z Electronic Journals)
2. Find details of UoM subscription to the HBR journal
Search for all journals with the words “harvard business review ” in their title.
The result indicates that the University subscribes to HBR through the journal database EBSCOhost Business Source Premier.
Note the access information, especially if you are off-campus.
Click on the link. This takes you to the FindIT@UML for HBR – click GO.
3. Authenticate your access to Business Source Premier
This step will vary depending on whether you are on-campus or on-campus.
On-campus, your PC is recognised as belonging to the University and no additional authentication is required.
If you are off-campus you need to select the Shibboleth login link and provide your details (for more detail see previous access Harvard Business Review post).
If you are off-campus and using the VPN software then you are “virtually on-campus” – your PC behaves as an on-campus PC.
4. Select the HBR issue
When you get to the HBR page on Business Source Premier (EBSCO host):
Expand the year (from the article’s bibliographic details) and then select the relevant issue.
Use the search within this publication link.
5. Get the article
When you get to the page for a HBR issue:
Scroll through the articles to find the one that you want
Amend the search at the top of the page with further details e.g. author surname, title keywords …
You can download the full-text by selecting the PDF full text link.
Use the add to folder link and then the folder view and export to add the bibliographic details to your reference management system.
