Why do I not always get the full text?

Clicking the title of a full text result takes you to the website of the publisher of that article, and they can vary greatly in appearance and operation. Sometimes you may be given details of the article again, and will have to click on links to full text PDF or HTML versions to open them. Unfortunately, sometimes you may be taken to a search page, or to the webpage for the whole journal and not the article. You can try to locate the article from there, or click on the "other options for obtaining content" from the Link To banner at the top of the page.

If you cannot locate the full text you require, please let us know.  You can go to the 'More' tab, and send us a message on the feedback form (just enter your name and e-mail address and we'll get in touch), or contact us through Chat, or e-mail in the usual ways.
