Accessing Cited Papers

Instructions for accessing papers cited in AGU Journal Highlights and press releases

For journalists and public information officers of educational and scientific institutions:

Downloading

If you have registered with AGU for direct electronic access and received a username and password, you may download pdf files of one or more of the papers cited in AGU Journal Highlights and AGU press releases (including pre-publication copies of articles listed as “in press”) as follows. First, click on the link at the end of the Highlight regarding the paper of interest or on the link to the paper provided in the press release. Then:

If the paper has already been published: When you activate the dx.doi.org link, you should be directed immediately to an abstract. Once there, click on the hyperlink at the top of the abstract, which says “Read Full Article.” Clicking on it will take you to a page that asks you to log in. There, click on “click here” of the first option. That takes you to another Web page that asks for the username and password. Enter your username and password, then click Submit. Now you should find yourself at the HTML version of the full article. It has a navigation bar on the left, with a link at the bottom entitled “PDF for Print”. Click on that link and you should see the pdf of the selected paper appear on your screen.

If the paper is “in press”: Activating the link at the end of the Highlight, should take you immediately to the Web page that asks you to log in-not to an abstract. Click on “click here” of the first option. That takes you to another Web page that asks for the username and password. Enter your username and password, then click Submit. This action should immediately bring up a PDF of the preliminary—“in press”—version of the paper. (Please do not quote from “in press” papers.)
