Starting 8/1/2013, Harvard Business Review has changed its printing policy. The 500 most heavily read articles have been set to "read only," which means that they cannot be printed. Printing has been disabled within the file. Articles not on the 500 most heavily read list should allow saving and printing.
How can you tell?
When you click on the detailed record, there is a message at the top stating, “The publisher offers limited access to this article. The full text cannot be printed or saved.”
If you go straight into the PDF from results you won’t see the message, but you will notice that the printer icon is grayed out in Internet Explorer or Chrome. If you try to print from Firefox, the text will be scrambled in some parts.
If you miss that message and click on either print or save from Tools, there is another message at the right stating “The full text for selected articles from this publisher cannot be printed/saved.”
Below is the list of the 500 articles impacted by this change. Please note that the articles on this list may change over time. See this article from the Harvard Crimson regarding this policy.
Please call the Library (800-451-5724) or email us if you have questions or would like access to the print edition of Harvard Business Review.
