Finding full text of articles from SciFinder

Finding full text from a SciFinder citation is less than straightforward. From an individual citation, select 'Link to Other Sources'. You should then find options for SULinks or links directly from the publisher. Select the publisher link as a first choice; often this will take you directly to the full text of the article.
