Help Topic: PDFs

Almost all Cambridge Journals are available in PDF. You can access the PDF version of a journal's articles if you belong to an organisation which has a subscription or if you have a personal subscription of your own.

The PDF is accessible from a journal's table of contents or a list of search results. Clicking on the 'View PDF' link beneath an article's title brings up the article within the page you are looking at.

Viewing Articles in PDF

All Cambridge Journals Online articles are available as PDFs (Portable Document Format). PDFs show the articles on screen as they appear on the printed page. To view PDF articles, you need Adobe's Acrobat Reader. This is freely available and can be downloaded from the Adobe website.

If you are not responsible for maintaining your computers you should consult with your library administrator or IT/MIS staff before downloading any software.

Sometimes, if a PDF is particularly large, it can take a long time to load. In which case it may appear to some users to have been corrupted when, in fact, it has just not been served and will resolve itself in due course.

Printing PDFs

Note: when an article is available in both HTML and PDF, to print the article as a PDF you will need to use the Print function that appears in the PDF toolbar and not the Print function in your browser's toolbar.
