However, not all articles allow you to read the full text. The full text of the documents usually comes from institutional repositories, personal pages of scientists, open access journals, the public domain etc. The more recent materials (not in the public domain) are made available with the agreement of the authors for free access. Today there is a range of access permissions that you should know in order to make the best use of the articles without infringing the author's rights.
Nazarbayev University Institutional Repository (NUR) is an example of an open-access resource indexed in Scholar.
