I’ve tried to access a publication outside the Cambridge university domain (i.e. pretending I am a Scholarly Poor. Here’s the screenshot
In case you can’t read it, the text includes:

Now there is a little Open padlock at the top right called “Free” and the mouseover says:
“You have Full Text Access to this Online Article”
And yet I don’t.
Do other people get the same?
So Wiley is telling me I have “free” access where “free” seems to indicate I have to pay.
No idea what is going on. My predictions:
- The padlock is a mistake
- The text is actually free but Wiley routes me through a paywall by “mistake”
Let’s see if they even notice this blog. BTW Wiley was the publisher who sent a legal letter to graduate student Shelley Batts for publishing ONE graph without permission.
