When you click on the title of an article in PubMed search results, a screen opens with the title, author(s), and abstract of the article. Look for the icons under "Full text links" in the upper right corner of your browser window.
Full text icons - There are three types of icons that may be included in the full text links.
The publisher link will take you to the journal's website. Typically, it will direct you to the specific article. However, sometimes you will need to retype the article name in the journal's search bar. If full text access is not available, the publisher may ask you to purchase access. Try the other options below before you decide to purchase an article. HSLIC is not responsible for any purchases made.
The UNM link directs you through the HSLIC site to see if full text access is available. If full text is available then you will click 'View Full Text' and be directed to the item. If there is not full text access then you will get a message that says 'We were unable to find direct full text links for this item.'
Open Access Icons
Open access links indicate journals where the contents are freely accessible to anyone without a subscription.
