Since summer 2018, there has been ongoing negotiations with the publishers Elsevier, Springer Nature, Wiley and Taylor&Francis. UNIT negotiates based on the Government’s national goals and guidelines for open access to research results

Clarification: The agreement with Elsevier concerns scientific journals in the e-journal package ScienceDirect Freedom Collection. E-books and other services are not affected. NTNU has archive access to some journals, in other words articles published before 2019.

How to access scholarly articles

How to find available articles

The most important things you can do:

  1. The link above will bring you to a page where there are plugins or links to find open or accessible articles.  
  2. Ask your colleagues if they have the articles you need, or contact the article author(s) to get a copy of the article from them.
  3. Contact the Medicine and Health Library

Employees at St.Olavs hospital:

Notice that you have to use Google Chrome in order to activate plugins such as Unpaywall and Open Access Button.

To avoid technical problems with access we recommend that you always use Chrome when searching for academic articles.

Contact your unit leader to ask Hemit to install Chrome to your computer.
