Image result for pubmed icon PubMed is the National Library of Medicine’s comprehensive database of citations in the biomedical and life sciences journal literature. Publicly-funded, the database is free to use. Citations include both open and pay-walled articles. If an open version is available, either in the NLM’s own archive (PubMed Central) or elsewhere, the listing will include a link to the full text.
Image result for google scholar icon Google Scholar pulls data from resources like PubMed and cross-references it with data collected from the open web. If Scholar finds the full text of an article available online, you’ll find a link (to a PDF, a Word document, or the HTML text) in the column on the right side of the page.
