R : If you can’t access to the full text although the journal is published by the publisher to which we subscribe, the reasons are :
the journal is not part of the subscription
the journal is part of the subscription but the year of publication of the article requested is not covered by the subscription.
Q : I can’t access to electronic resources. I have to provide a username and password
R : First, be sure that the resource in question is included in the list of electronic subscriptions by consulting REPERE and that the year of publication of the article to download is covered by the subscription (chronological coverage is indicated in the instructions of the corresponding publisher).
