  1. PDF articles are encoded in Adobe Acrobat format. You will see the article as it appeared in the original print format: all illustrations, charts, graphs, and page numbers are in their original locations.  
  2. When printed, they look like photocopies of the original articles, and, since page numbers are in the original places, PDF articles are much easier to cite in your bibliography or cited works page.
  3. HTML format of a journal article gives you all the words from the original article, with none of the original formatting.  
  4. There are no headings, no columns, no graphs and no page numbers, just straight paragraph format to scroll through.  This format works well when you are simply reading the article online.   

When you have the choice, ALWAYS select PDF Full Text.

To print the document:

1.   Make sure you have the PDF document on your screen  BEFORE printing the document.

2.   Use the print icon which is located in the document window in the black bar at the top.  DO NOT USE the printer icon in the tools bar.
