Neurology, Neuroscience & Neurosurgery

A subject guide providing links to Library resources available for neurology, neuroscience and neurosurgery at UCL.

Key journals in your subject area

The main printed journal collection for neurology, neurosurgery and neuroscience is in the Queen Square Library, based at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, while other relevant printed materials can be found in the medicine collections across UCL Library Services.

Thousands of e-journals are also available, via the UCL e-journals service. Remember that some journals are not available online and you may need to use print collections.

  • Online - many of the journals you need are available to you through the UCL e-journals collection. You can search for a particular title, or browse the collection. When browsing you can view a neurology subset by clicking the Subject tab, selecting the category Health Sciences and the sub-category Neurology.
  • Print - for some journals you may need to use the printed collections. To find out where a print journal is located, search Explore and limit your search to 'UCL Journals'. Some print journals are available on open shelves within the library collections while others, especially older volumes, may be kept in closed stores.
  • If Explore shows the location 'Stores', the item is kept in UCL Stores and you will need to place a store request. Some libraries have local stores, for example the location 'Neurology' with a 'STORE' collection code means that the book is kept in the Neurology Store in Queen Square (you may place a request in person, by phone or by email).
