For Google Scholar, see Configure your Google Scholar Settings. For Pub Med, create an NCBI account to be able to use the Outside Tool to link to resources. The video My NCBI: Selecting Your Outside Tool Preference had detailed instructions. If any journal link takes you to a pay option, do NOT pay!!
