Trouble Linking to Articles in ScienceDirect?

Trouble Getting the Full Text from ScienceDirect?

There is currently a problem with linking to certain articles in ScienceDirect from library databases. The error message you see may look like this:

We are aware of the issue and the provider of ScienceDirect is working on a fix, but we don't have a time frame for when it will be completed.

But you can still get these articles.

When you see that error message, look to the bar on the right-hand side of the page and click on the Browse Journal link to locate the article, as shown here:

You can also find the article a couple of other ways:

  • Connect directly to ScienceDirect and search for the article by title.
  • On the library's Article Databases page, use Find Journals by Title to search by the name of the journal, then navigate to the volume and issue you need.

If you need help with any of this, don't hesitate to contact a librarian.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
