Interesting sidelight from the THES, on the new UK trial of public access to 8,000 commercial paywall journals…

the terms of use of the scheme expressly forbid the use of papers accessed through it for “commercial research”.

So perhaps not so useful for business research as had been hoped.

Access is to journals from Elsevier, Wiley, Springer, T&F, through selected public libraries in the more affluent parts of the UK.
