N.B.: Of course, most publications above are somehow copyrighted, therefore you can only "use" them at your own "risk"! Personally, I support Richard Stallman's views on scientific publication's copyright as summarized here, but, more practically speaking, I would also like to add that

Articles freely available online are more highly cited. For greater impact and faster scientific progress, authors and publishers should aim to make research easy to access.
