Online access during the corona crisis

General search tip

General search tip

Are you using the UAntwerp button to find the full text for an article and is he saying there is no full text available? Normally this is correct, but with the corona crisis many publishers are giving free access to their resources. The UAntwerp button doesn't always know about this free access. So search a little further; perhaps use Google Scholar to find the article at the publisher's site and just try if you can get to the full text.
