BMA library’s journal articles can now be accessed on Google Scholar

Google Scholar can be used to search for scholarly information on the internet, including articles, books, conference papers, and theses. Some of the results will have a link to articles that are freely available, but we have now made it possible for you to see at a glance what articles are also available through the BMA library, ensuring you don’t miss any relevant articles for your research.

  2. In the search results, select ‘British Medical Association Library – Access-Now@BMA-Library‘ 
  1. Click on the ‘Save’ button

After the BMA Library is added once to your Google Scholar account, when you search on Google Scholar for an article that is available on our catalogue, you will find a link titled ‘Access-Now@BMA-Library‘ next to the search result:
