Getting to Full-Text Articles

In PubMed, the most reliable way to access full-text articles is by using the purple and gold Check for Full Text icons.

While the publisher icons often work, sometimes our journal subscription is through a third party, not the publisher. The purple and gold icons will point you to the full-text article we have access to or will prompt you to request a scanned copy.

For alternative ways of getting to full-text articles, check out these browser plugin options.


*Please note, some off-campus users are having trouble with our UW icons in PubMed and are receiving error messages. To avoid having this issue, please consider using HuskyOnNet (HON) for a secure connection to remote access. HON gives current UW faculty, staff, and students a secure connection to our UW network while off-campus. Information and the link to downloading HON is found here:
