For the last couple years, I used Google Scholar to get a general idea on various research articles. I clicked on the links that led me to PubMed and more. But I can only get free articles at home.
I did things the hard way — I found the articles that I wanted the full PDF on. Logged into library.nyu.edu and searched for the journal, year, etc. It took forever!!!
Now, I can still use Google Scholar to find articles. I just followed the directions in the link. It has made my life so much easier. So thank you Google Scholar and NYU Library.
