Restricted access and use
The Harvard Business Review (HBR) imposes restrictions on access and use of its 500 most popular articles online.
This includes popular articles such as "What makes a leader," "Managing oneself," and "Are you solving the right problems?"
Restrictions include not allowing direct links to top articles, and not allowing you to print or save online articles from the top 500.
Find and access HBR articles (including top 500)
If you try to access one of these top articles through a direct link, you will see a message saying, "Persistent linking is NOT permitted," or "The publisher offers limited access to this article. The full text cannot be viewed from a persistent link" (or something similar).
- Make sure JN "Harvard Business Review" stays in one of the search boxes
- Use quotation marks around your article title for best results
If you have a citation, including the date, volume, issue, and page numbers in which the article appeared, you can also drill down by browsing for the year in which your article appeared, then the volume, and so on.
Printing or saving articles
Top 500 articles are available online as "read only," and you cannot download or print them.
You may scan or copy from a print copy of the HBR held here at SFU.
