Why can I not access some full text items in Cadair?

  • Some theses or dissertations are embargoed – for further information click on “Full Item record” and scroll to the bottom of the metadata where embargo information will be.
  • In other cases, the full text of some items is restricted under a publisher's policy where copyright was transferred to them by the author under the terms of publication, so we cannot put it on open access.
  • There will sometimes be a link to an online version of the paper or article if it isn't available through open access.
  • Where this happens, we do our best to include a link to an online version of the paper or article, where one exists, so that users at institutions that subscribe to that journal can see the full text.
