Q. Why is Google Scholar asking me to pay for full-text articles?
Some of the links in Google Scholar will lead to full text documents contained within a subscription based database to which UVic Libraries may not subscribe. If the item is contained within an unsubscribed database, an option to purchase the article might be offered.
UVic students, faculty and staff do not need to pay for access to these items. Once UVic users ensure that the items are not available at UVic, then you should click on "Item not@Uvic?" to request the item from another library at no charge.
