On August 1, 2013 Harvard Business Publishing restricted access to 500 of their most popular Harvard Business Review (HBR) articles.
Users are unable to print or save the articles, and they do not allow them to be linked for course readings.
You will see this message:
You can open and view the PDF full text online. You might be able to save the PDF to your computer if you use 'save as'. However, there is no guarantee you will be able to do that. You cannot print the full text.
Here is the explanation from Harvard Business Review, which is at the bottom of each restricted article:
"Harvard Business Review and Harvard Business Publishing Newsletter content on EBSCOhost is licensed for the private individual use of authorized EBSCOhost users. It is not intended for use as assigned course material in academic institutions nor as a corporate learning or training materials in businesses. Academic licensees may not use this content in electronic reserves, electronic course packs, persistent linking from syllabi or by any other means of incorporating the content into course resources."
