Dear Kidtwit, 

First of all, you don't have to go to university, it is enough that
you'll go to a university library, or any library for that matter that
has access to OVID.

However, Ovid also has a Pay-per-View progranmme, where you can read
full text of an article through paying for it:

The registration process also contains the option to sign in as a

thanks for your answer but if you try someof the options you suggest
you will find that they don't work. Ovid appears uninterested in
signing up individuals and I was hoping for a way around this
stonewall. I'm surpried you didn't mention enrolling in a comunity
college with access to a good medical library.

When you have more time and if you are interested why don't you spend
more eergy and a more complete answer and I will work on my typing.

Dear Kidtwit, 

First of all, registration for individuals has worked fine through
there for a friend of mine who's tested the issue. However, I will try
to invetigate further. As I said before, you don't have to enroll
anywhere, or pay anyone, if you just found a library that has OVID,
which many do. If you could, please tell me where you live (not the
full address, just the area) so I can find a suitable library for you.

In addition, I haven't made fun of your spelling and I wouldn't dream
of it - some people have problems with their spelling (because English
is not their first language, or because they're tired, or because they
have certain medical conditions that would affect spelling) - this
doesn't make them anything less...
