At UTP Journals, we are dedicated to fulfilling the changing needs of our clients worldwide. In this section you will find information regarding library subscriptions, site licenses, pricing, electronic access, customer service, and claims.

Online Journals

We are pleased to note that there are now 35 journals available at UTP Journals Online. Our site has all the features that users and librarians look for in an electronic resource. In particular, we offer readers full searching (full text, Boolean, relevancy ranking, and persistent keyword searching), quick searching (single field, single button, automatic recognition of ISSN and DOI), advanced searching (citation text, publication, subjects, or content types), search results (summaries, dimensional navigation, abstracts, citation or tabular results, search within results, filter selected items), parent list navigation, publication metadata, TOC alerting, forward reference linking, and link exports. For librarians, we simplify access management, linking, and usage reporting with powerful yet easy-to-use administration tools. Support for established and emerging standards, such as OpenURL and COUNTER, enables seamless integration with existing library systems. Our site is now also Shibboleth compliant.
