    Lobby the university to give students access to more scientific journals through the university library

      Currently, students are limited as to how many scientific journals they are able to access due to rights issues with the journal itself. The university should pay in order for students to be able to access these journals

      Why you think it is important

      Esssay, report and dissertation writing relies on solid research which means we need access to reliable and reputable journals. Many journals we don't have access to could contain vital information which relates to our assignments and we simply can't access them

      Is there anything else you think we should know?
