Where can you find academic articles?

  • Business Academy Aarhus subscribes to the article database EBSCO Business Source Complete and links to several other professionally oriented article databases (learn more in the menu 'E-resources') where you can search for and download research articles.
  • Academic articles often cost money to read.
    Business Academy Aarhus has purchased a license for the EBSCO Business Source Complete article database and links to several other professionally oriented article databases (find them in the 'E-resources' menu) where you can search for and download research articles.
  • Among other things, we can recommend the 'Directory of Open Access Journals', where you can find a wealth of free access research journals. Google's little brother, Google Scholar, links to material from publishers and educational institutions - e.g. books, undergraduate projects and academic articles.
  • Unfortunately, there is not always free and full access to all texts (this can also be happen with EBSCO and the other specialized databases), and what do you do then? Normally, we would send you to the service Scientific Articles ( - but currently that service is paused. We have no specific date for access to it again - but we are informed that if technical and legal problems are resolved, we will be able to access it again by mid-2020.
  • You may be lucky to find articles by copying the title (remember to put the title in "quotation marks") and searching Google. Not Google Scholar, just Google. If the article is not in a full text, but there is a reference to ResearchGate, send an email to Sidsel ( She has access to ReseachGate and can often get the articles by contacting the researchers. Also, remember to check if Academia can be accessed; free access, if you create a profile.

How do you read an academic article?

It's not the same as a textbook, or a novel - to be most effective, you'll need to treat it in a specific way. Learn this way from the short video below:

Opening hours

The Campus Sønderhøj library, Business Academy Aarhus, Sønderhøj 30, DK-8260 Viby J - on the 1st floor, just above the canteen.

If you need help from a librarian, we are at the library:

  • Monday - Thursday: 9 - 16
  • Friday: 9 - 14

As a student, you can access the library 24/7 - use your student card and your PIN code to get in.

Magazines at Campus Sønderhøj

The library subscribes to a lot of print magazines - Danish and foreign (in Norwegian, German, English). Newest issues are at display at the back of the study area (it says 'Magazine reading corner' on the wall) and you can read those within the library. Older issues are placed in the library collection among the books (shelf numbers are mentioned at the display) those you can borrow.

Employees can subscribe to a magazine reading list - which is why the newest magazine on display sometimes is a bit ... old :-)

How to use the library

Use your student card to borrow books at the library. Your username is your eaa-username (ex. eaasist) and your pin code is the last four digits of your CPR number.

It is free to use the library and it is open 24/7 for all students with a student ID. Use the self-service machine by the library entrance to borrow and return books.

Through the library you have access to books from all Danish libraries (educational. governmental and research libraries). It's absolutely free to use the national library service

The default borrowing period for most books is 14 days - if you need them for a longer time, contact the librarian.

You can renew borrowed materials 3 times if the material is not reserved by somebody else. You can renew by logging in to your library account, or by contacting the library.

Reminders are sent 3 times to the e-mail address in your account, and there are no fees if you return too late.

If you fail to return materials, all following correspondence (settlement of account, bill, tax recovery information) will be posted in your digital E-boks.
