I would like to call attention to the practice that some publishers do
not give library access to articles posted on their Web sites ahead of
Here is an example: Jinek, Martin. (2014). Structures of Cas9
Endonucleases Reveal RNA-Mediated Conformational Activation. Science
This article was posted on Science Web site on Feb 6, 2014, as a
pre-publication article, and it has been indexed by PubMed. My
library has current online subscription to Science, and has no problem
accessing other regular articles. But as of today, access to this
article requires payment.
Publishers should stop this practice. It confuses both users and
librarians, especially when they try to get the article from an index
and OpenURL link resolver.
