When you are searching in Google Scholar and click on “Find it @ Federation” you will get a message “The information you’re about to submit is not secure”.

You can instead view the item by clicking on the name of the item [HTML or PDF] that you are wanting and it should take you to this item.

We have reported this issue and hope to resolve shortly.
