Accessing articles

So this isn't really a post, I just wanted to put this here in case anyone is ever looking to access a journal article using Uppsala University's credentials. For some reason it's hard to find information about how this works on the UU website (for me at least). Say you have an article that you've found on a journal's website, like this one:

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0370157315002604

You'll notice if you click this (from home, I'm not sure about from a UU connection) that you don't have access to the full article. To gain access you can use UU's proxy, by inserting ".ezproxy.its.uu.se" (without the quotes, obviously) after the .com but before the /, like so:


Now you'll see that if you click the link it takes you to your UU login page. If you log in, it will return you to the article page, now with full access. There is a full list of databases supported by this feature on ezproxy.its.uu.se, but it's pretty long and I've not yet encountered an article that I haven't been able to access in this way. Happy reading!
