Mu301Bot at Dominant group/Planetary science
The bot didn't like another sciencedirect abstract: url=http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0019103500963589. These sciencedirect abstracts normally do not allow the wikiversitian to get to a free copy of the article, which I would prefer the reader to have access to. Usually, Google scholar can give me the complete quote which I put into the article. If I need to do follow up I just interlibrary loan (ILL) (usually for free, so far) a copy of the article. Any suggestions? I don't mind an occasional message from the bot. It did find one dead link at Dg/Ps, but these sciencedirect abstracts are a bit annoying as is the demand for $s.

- url=http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0003491606002557 is another one like above at radiation astronomy found by the bot. One possibility is to leave these sciencedirect abstract urls out of the citation. Another might be a bot scan command that skips the process when it finds "... sciencedirect ...". This way if the user wants to ILL a copy they have all the info they need. A third may be to put a note with the citation indicating that the quote is obtained by Google scholar.
