I'll ask our library what the copyright issues are with some of the journals. I know that it is legal to copy up to about 10% of a bound book (so that includes a bound journal of multiple volumes/issues), and that in some cases it is ok to use that for educational purposes. I suspect you are right that we couldn't post a whole article from Nature or Science, but I'll ask anyway, and see what answer I get. We might be able to get away with posting the Abstract/Introduction and Conclusions perhaps? :dunno:

Well if you do a Google Scholar search for the article then a lot of the time it's been reproduced somewhere for free. This obviously doesn't apply for every single article, but for a lot of the more popular articles it seems to be the case.
