There is an issue affecting certain Elsevier ScienceDirect journals.
While green ‘Full-Text Access’ icons may be displaying next to an article, the PDF Download functionality isn’t working correctly, and all users are confronted with a paywall. The Elsevier team is working on this issue and we hope to have an update for you soon.
A list of the known affected titles is below. Should you come across any other titles with this same issue, please report them to eResources Help.
Elsevier has a temporary workaround, in case any researchers need immediate access to an article.
Instead of clicking the “Download PDF” button, check the box next to the article and then select “Download selected articles”. That will give the option to open a zip file and then access the article.
Titles known to be affected:
* Science of the Total Environment
* Journal of Molecular Biology

We have solved the problem with Passport. Please do the following:
1) clear all history (cache & cookies) from your browser (or if you know what you are doing, clear only the history/cookies related to Passport)
2) go to the Resource page & click on Connect to Resource and log into UBC’s EZproxy as usual.
Passport GMID is leading from the CWL log-in screen to it’s own log-in page rather than into the resources.
We are looking into the problem.
Stay tuned.No Comments

Linking at the journal title level to select titles within EBSCOhost’s Medline can lead to an error:
Error in HttpHandler
We are working on a solution.
Linking to the Database itself and then searching within the Database works fine. EBSCOhost Medline database level is HERE.No Comments

These are open access versions of articles sourced through Unpaywall.
What does this mean? Unpaywall is a database of “freely available” versions of articles. Alumni, Community Users or anyone can click on the OpenVersion link when it appears and be taken to a version of the article without authenticating (no CWL or EZproxying needed). FAQs can be found here.
Note if citing the article that the Unpaywall version may differ from the final published version.No Comments
