Q. When trying to get the full-text of some articles I am being asked to pay.
It is quite possible that while a specific article is listed in a database the University Library's subscription to that journal may not include the year that the article was published.
The University Library is able to get a copy of the article, at no charge to you, if you submit a request via BeachReach. To do that go online to https://illiad.library.csulb.edu/BeachReachLogon/ and use the citation information for the article to complete your request.
