the-logo

All staff and students at the University of Aberdeen now have online access to the Times Higher Education (THE) content. Regarded by many as the UK’s leading publication in the field, our institutional subscription will allow you to read weekly digital editions and THE supplements. You can also search across and access other THE content as part of our licence.

The subscription provides full-text access to THE Digital Editions from May 2015 up to the latest weekly edition.

To access THE content, register for a personal account on the Times Higher Education homepage. You will need to use your University of Aberdeen email address to link your account to the institutional subscription.

  • You are now logged into the service and the user account icon will change colour from red to green.

Accessing Times Higher Education on your phone/tablet

There is a Times Higher Education app; however, no new content has been added since 6 June 2019 and THE recommend that users access content via the mobile edition of the website instead. Confusingly, until THE remove it the app may still be available in App stores.

Accessing weekly issues (Digital Editions)

To access  individual weekly issues of Times Higher Education:

  • Click on the PROFESSIONAL tab, then select Digital Editions
  • Select the issue you want to view

Searching across online content

It is possible to carry out simple searches across THE’s online content using the search facility (magnifying glass icon to the right of the user account icon). The refine option for large numbers of results is limited.

Existing personal subscriptions

Personal subscriptions paid for by individuals or the University can be cancelled as staff and students now have online access through the University’s institutional service.

If you have any queries, please contact: library@abdn.ac.uk
