SciFinder has changed the link to full text for articles. Once you find your article, to get full text you need to click on the link at the top left which says "Link to Other Sources". This is also available from the results list as a small icon that says "Other Sources". This will open another window telling you if full text is available at Rutgers. You may need to turn off your pop-up blocker if the window doesn't open. Newer articles may not be available due to restrictions by the publisher (embargoes).
