PubMed Central (PMC) Free Articles down

August 1st, 2016 by Laura Schlueter

We are currently experiencing downtime and pdfs from PubMed Central (PMC) are not accessible. We are working to resolve the issue. This outage does not impact our licensed journals are still available through PubMed, and articles we do not own can be requested via ILL as normal. If you need assistance retrieving an article, please contact the library at 315-464-7091 or library@upstate.edu. We may be able to access the article(s) through a different vendor.

From some articles, you may have success retrieving an article using this workaround:

1) When you retrieve an abstract that links to a free PMC article, try using the links to either another vendor if available, or the “Owned by Upstate” link (*note some of the other vendors may still redirect to PMC and result in a dead-end)

 

 

 

 

 

2) If “Owned by Upstate” is selected, try linking to the “article” links from databases other than PubMed Central (PMC)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is PubMed Central? PMC is a repository of free full text articles, available through PubMed (read more).
