findarticles.com link[edit]

I added the link to findarticles.com, but it was deleted. The reason given was because there was already a link for online access for PDF format, (that one has to pay for). However, the findarticles.com link has free access to articles for this journal (in HTML format), so that's why I added it. EPM (talk) 15:41, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

*If that's true, then this might constitute a violation of copyright and a reason the more that we should not link to it... Unless findarticles.com has an agreement with that journal, I don't think it is appropriate to link there. --Crusio (talk) 15:46, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Well, this is very interesting to say the least. Here is a link for the Terms of Use:

  • Based on the above I am not sure it is a good idea to provide this link in a Wikipedia article. Access and use of the services is only for one's own personal, non-commercial use. I don't think we should "advertise" this link. This is not personal use - it is displaying the link on another web site without specific persmission or authorization. It appears to be a "Terms of use" violation. ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 17:37, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Interesting website, though. Strange that they provide for free articles that are behind a paywall at the publisher's site. But as it seems to belong to a respectable company, it's improbable that they are doing this illegally. I'll ask my contacts at Wiley-Blackwell what they know about this. (Perhaps not much, my contacts are in the life sciences division). --Crusio (talk) 17:52, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
I am thinking that the only way this link could be allowed in a main space article, such as this, is if the link is part of a reference. Any thoughts? ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 20:32, 20 December 2010 (UTC)
