In general, it is perfectly acceptable to link to a website to access site content without the permission of the website owner. The link MUST take the user completely out of the AOM (or individual) website to the content owner's website (i.e., AOM should not "frame" the website in its own pop up window to make it seem as if AOM is the author), this is a completely legal use of a link. The rationale behind this view is that if one is taken to the actual content owner's website, there is absolutely no mistake as to the identity of the content owner (it is not as if AOM would be trying to pass itself off as the author or publisher).
