Smart tips to download Nature-branded Journals

In January 2018, the University of the Ryukyus signed a COD (Contents on Demand) contract for Nature-branded Journals. (The “Nature” itself is excluded from this COD contract as we have a subscription to “Nature” since 1987.) This contract allows you to access most of the Nature-branded Journals. On the other hand, a COD unit (1 unit = 1,620 yen) will be automatically consumed when you click the icon “Display Full-text” or when you download a Full-text PDF on your information access device. We show you below some important reminders to search or to download an article regarding the Nature-branded Journals through “PubMed” or “Google Scholar.” Your appropriate usage of COD is highly appreciated. We also offer contents from the database of EBSCO, ”Academic Search Complete” from 2018. With this database, you can find a part of the Nature-branded Titles and download a Full-text PDF without consuming any COD unit (see below). If you need more information, please feel free to contact library staff.
