How to access Marketing Review (or Business Strategy Review or …)

1 September 2013 1 comment

Rather than another How to access Harvard Business Review post this year we take an example from Marketing Review.

Gabbott, M. (2004). “Undertaking a Literature Review in Marketing”. Marketing Review, 4(4), pp. 411-429.

Now to read the full-text – University of Manchester students and staff do not have to pay but you do have to access Marketing Review via a journals database.

Keep title, author, year and issue (i.e. the main bibliographic details) to hand, and follow these steps:

1. Goto the e-journals A-to-Z list.

The e-journals A-to-Z list link is on business and management journal articles page.

If you are accessing from a mobile device you can use the  EBSCOhost app.

2. Find details of UoM subscription to the Marketing Review journal

Search for all journals with the words “marketing review ” in their title (I used “starts with” rather than “contains” to limit the results).

The result indicates that the University subscribes to Marketing Review 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 Marketing Review – 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 login using your University username and password.

If you are off-campus and using the VPN software then you are “virtually on-campus” – your PC behaves as an on-campus PC.

Access Harvard Business Review off-campus

12 October 2011 2 comments

The journal Harvard Business Review (HBR) is available to University of Manchester students and staff as an e-journal and you can access it off-campus.

To access a HBR article you need to do two things: first, find out which journal database(s) has full-text access to HBR, and second authenticate yourself as a member of the University of Manchester.

The simplest way to find the journal database for HBR is to use the electronic journals A-Z  list.

The e-journals A-Z list will include the link to the journal database and information on how to logon. For Harvard Business Review it gives

Business Source Premier  1922 to present
University central usename required off-campusUniversity central username and password required off-campus
(Select Shibboleth Login)
Business Source Premier - login

BSP (EBSCO) login – click to enlarge

For Harvard Business Review we select the Business Source Premier (BSP) link. If you are off-campus this takes you to a login page as you need to authenticate yourself.

  1. Select Shibboleth Login (not the most obvious choice we admit)
  2. Select UK Higher Education as Region or group
  3. Select University of Manchester as school or institution
  4. At University of Manchester Central Authentication Service – use your username and password (See what this looks like New Look for Central Authentication Service )

That is the authentication part done. Now you can use the rest of the article reference (year, volume, issue,  page no. etc.) to select the specific article. Once you have found the article, the PDF Full Text  link  is the one to download it.

Notes

Authentication can vary. If you have already authenticated then your browser may have cached the details so that you don’t need to provide them again. If you are running VPN then your authentication is by your PC being part of the virtual network.

The steps are basically the same for accessing other e-journals. The authentication varies slightly with different journal databases,

New look to the University’s secure login pages

16 June 2011 1 comment

From Monday 20 June, you will see a new screen whenever you are asked to login to a secure University web page via CAS (central authentication system). You will come across this screen when accessing many of the library’s online databases either on or off-campus.

secure log-in screen

The new login screen is designed to be more user friendly and to work better with mobile devices such as smartphones and portal hand held devices.

Don’t worry none of your login details need to change and, as always, IT Services recommends that you follow some simple rules to stay secure:

  • Always check the address of any web page that asks for your University username and password.
  •  Never respond to an email that asks for your University username and password.
