Strategy to find free articles on human mtDNA & Y-chr. DNA

It seems this forum on scientific articles is only about a year old - at least that's what is available. A good way to find articles that may interest you is go to PubMed and find the review article "Use of Y Chromosome and Mitochondrial DNA Population Structure in Tracing Human Migrations" from 2007 in the Annual Review of Genetics. This article is not free - you'll have to go to a university library to get it, but it's worth the trouble as background. On the lower right side of the PubMed page there is a link to all the articles in PubMed Central (thus free) that reference this review. There are about 75 articles at the moment. You can have a look at that article list and see what interests you.

Of course there are also plenty of articles that are relevant and not freely available, but there's plenty in the free articles to keep you busy for a while.

That is very similar to what I am doing. I have a collection of authors and articles on the topics of interest to me, and sometimes I am looking for new articles by just looking for new papers referencing them... Usually getting more than I can digest

As I wrote above, the process of following references is a good one, just wanted to mention that a free copy of the said review article is available as
