We recommend using the Library link. This ensures that you are accessing the published version of an article.

It is important to know that not all articles in Google Scholar are peer-reviewed. Additionally, free links will sometimes lead to draft or pre-publication versions of articles.

Keep an eye out for publication information (journal, volume, issue). Want to verify that it is peer-reviewed? See this page for more information.
