Getting full text of journal articles

Links to full-text journal articles during web services outage

Due to the campus-wide security outage, the FindIt/easyArticle service, used to access full text from databases such as PubMed and GoogleScholar, is currently offline. The LibKey Nomad browser extension provides one-click article access in many databases, including JSTOR, PubMed, Google Scholar, publisher journal pages, and even Wikipedia references. Information on how to download and use LibKey Nomad is available in this FAQ article.

  • Upload citations from multiple databases
  • Screen abstracts and full-text, based on explicit inclusion/exclusion criteria
  • Document each step of your reviewing process, for transparent reporting.
