The Law Bod’s online subscription goes back to the start of journal in 2009 (navigation to earlier issues is via the left hand column), but we will be getting the issues of the journal in paper from 2013 onwards only.

Temporary route to the e-version if off campus/without VPN
If you are a holder of an Oxford Single Sign username and password,  and you are off the OU network and without a VPN installed on your computer, please use the OU e-journals section of SOLO to find the online version – in due course it will appear in the normal SOLO search box … but not for the moment! You can sign in/log on for IP recognition either on the initial SOLO page or on the OU e-journals page.
Two quick reminders:

The  link to the OU e-journals search screen is above the search box on the SOLO home page

Click OU e-journals

Click OU e-journals above the blue word tabs

The default search is “contains” so best just to type in keywords from title

In this case I still need to log in with OSS near top right!

When signed in/logged on with Oxford Single Sign On you will have access to whole run

If European criminal law is your area of study, don’t forget that current holders of an Oxford Single Sign On username and password can also access online the 2002 book by Geert Corstens and Jean Pradel European Criminal Law  (The hard copy is at General 510 C826.4aE) and an even more recently started specialist journal, the European Criminal Law Review (EuCLR) published by Hart & Beck. Don’t worry that Find it at Oxford says we only have it online from 2012 2(1) – truly we have full e-access from 2011 1 (1)!
