PhD On Track is a collection of information on everything from literature search to how to assess the quality of journals, and can be a useful tool.
The library provides support and guidance to NIH's researchers in all the stages of writing.
The library can assist Ph.D.-students with clearifying the use of articles in their thesis, and answers any other questions about copyright.
Most publishers do not allow the use of the journal's pdf version, but the latest text version. And distribution to colleagues/researchers are meant in a much smaller scale than LinkedIn and Research Gate.
Be sure to check with the publisher first! www.howcanishareit.com is a helpful tool to find the publisher's policy. If you do not find the answer there, the library can help.
If the publisher says no to this use, you can either link to the article in Brage or to the summary of the article (on the journal's website).
