Although the University of Sheffield may provide access to a database, you might not be able to read every article hosted on it.

If you can't find a full-text article you need on a database, here are a few tips:

Google Scholar searches for full text of scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines. It is a great starting point to see what is available across your subject area, which will help you to do a more focused search.

It may provide links to articles where the full-text is not actually available. It may also link to material which can infringe copyright and/or where it’s not always easy to tell whether or not it’s the final peer-reviewed version.

If you still can't access the article you need, you can apply for an InterLibrary loan.
