Adobe® Reader® 6.0 is free software that lets you view and print Portable Document Format (PDF) files on a variety of devices and operating systems.

Many "full text" article databases now provide the article content in the PDF format.  The advantage of viewing the document in PDF is that it includes the images, charts, graphs, and other visual content as it originally appeared in the journal or magazine.
