- Some article titles are in Spanish but the actual article is in English.
- Read the abstract and click on pdf or html on the side of the screen to view the article.
- When you want to print a pdf of the article, use the print tool deepest in the database. Sometimes you have to "hover" your cursor over the bottom of the article to get the print menu icon to show.
