In a perfect world, all publications would be free to all people. However, publishing is a business and although a number of journals are provided on an Open Access basis, many require subscriptions.
** Most chiropractic libraries maintain full collections of chiropractic journals, some online and some in print. You may wish to contact a library and use its document delivery service. See CLC Member Libraries and follow the links to their services.
In ICL records we provide links to free full text whenever possible. Several journals indexed in ICL are included in PubMed Central, a permanent repository of Open Access journals. For those journals we make links to PubMed Central. (View JCCA back to 1978 in PubMed Central.)
For journals requiring subscriptions, we often use DOIs, or Digital Object Identifiers. These are unique numbers assigned to individual journal articles, such as this one, http://dx.doi.org/doi:10.1016/j.clch.2009.03.005 which links to the publishers of an article from the March 2009 issue of Clinical Chiropractic.
Some journals are available by subscription through more than one publisher. In the case of JMPT, for example, we provide links to PubMed records, which include links to publishers through PubMed’s LinkOut feature. See this example from the June 2009 issue of JMPT. Click on the PubMed link provided, scroll down, and select a publisher from LinkOut.
