Question about "free" marker

    Good question. As a member of a university, you should be able to only view content in your search results that you can download without paying out of your own pocket--so no worries there. 

    The "Free" marker is something that will appear on articles that can be downloaded or read online for free, regardless of whether or not you are logged in through your university. (You can see it when you're logged in and getting university access anyway only because we just think it's nice to share with people that we do provide access to some of the articles we host for free, regardless of whether they have a university affiliation). You'll also see a similar marker for "Open Access" content, which can be downloaded or read online for free regardless of whether you are logged in or part of a university (see example in the image below). Hope this helps!
