Accessing reviews and articles via Google

Publication Links

The majority of links on to reviews and articles will take you directly to the required content in the external publication.

In some cases you will need to register with the publication concerned to be able to access their content, and for a few publications you will be limited to a specific number of articles you can read per week/month.

Via Google

Some publications operate a pay wall to access all their content, but do allow one-time free access to articles when they are linked to from a Google search.

To access the review in this way you should click on the link on the Reviews page in the normal way. This will take you to a Google search results page, including the link to the desired review. Click on the link on this Google page and you will be taken to the review on the external publication.

Publications which require linking via Google will be clearly marked as such. Currently the Financial Times is one such publication and on the reviews page you will see this publication styled as Financial Times (via Google).
