What To Do If ...

In rare cases, articles are cited incorrectly, and a single mistake might be replicated repeatedly over time. If you are in the Single Citation Matcher, try taking out some of the numerical information - volume, issue, or page number for example - and put in more title words. PubMed will also auto-suggest names of  journals and of authors too, though those can be trickier.

Once you find what you're looking for, there are a few scenarios you may run into. 

Scenario #1. There is a Free Article or Free PMC link. Click on it to access the article. 

Scenario #2. Sometimes newer articles are in PMC but instead of the final copy it's the author's final submitted manuscript. Be aware that it has not gone through the publisher's peer review process and might differ slightly from the final version. 

Scenario #3. It says Full Text but it is from the publisher; it may ask you for money even if Harvard subscribes. You can try using the citation information and search for the article from Hollis and see if you can access it that way.

Scenario #4. The publication is not be available at your library. Use Harvard's Scan and Deliver/Interlibrary Loan service.  If you are unsure of the process or you get error messages, contact a reference librarian for assistance.
