I understand that PubMed cites articles that are on other sources, so it might not have a direct link to a full article.

The very question I am asking is actually answered in the FAQs of the site, and there is even a YouTube video that is really easy to understand.

In both the FAQ section and the youtube video, are presented multiple ways to find the full article from a PubMed page, or to find where to buy it.

However, for some pages, such as this one https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/7701351/ none of those options seems to be available, and I have no idea where to find, or purchase, such articles.

I understand that some articles might not be made for public use, I would sometimes be glad to pay to read some full articles, if I just knew where to do that.

How do I know where to find full articles in cases such as the one I linked? Or how do I know who to contact to find a way to obtain it?

I should say that Medical Sciences are not my field of study, so there might be something obvious that I don’t know.

The article you linked has the following citation in APA format when clicking "cite".

Goldman, A. S., Chheda, S., Keeney, S. E., Schmalstieg, F. C., & Schanler, R. J. (1994). Immunologic protection of the premature newborn by human milk. Seminars in perinatology, 18(6), 495–501.

Google searching for the journal Seminars in perinatology comes up with https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/seminars-in-perinatology

Searching for the volume and issue numbers seems to indicate that the journal website only goes back as far as Volume 19 (1995) — 1 year before the article you wish to read.

I would suggest that the only way you are going to get hold of a copy of this article is by contacting Elsevier.

If you can't find the research article via Google, you can always try to contact the authors of the article and ask for a copy of it.

  • Ok, but I don’t know who to contact exactly. In the case of the linked article. I just email Mr. Goldman? Or the University of Texas? – SpongeTheNumberOf Dec 5 '20 at 23:48
  • @SpongeTheNumberOf contact the authors of the article = A S Goldman 1, S Chheda, S E Keeney, F C Schmalstieg, R J Schanler. You can start with ASG. – Franck Dernoncourt Dec 5 '20 at 23:51
