Research pro tip:

If you are looking for a research paper to read and the paper is behind a paywall and is also not available on scihub, Reach out directly to the author.

There's a high chance that you will get the paper from the author as they barely get anything from paywall systems anyway.

    I'll go further than that - they almost certainly get nothing. Certainly never seen a penny from any of my papers behind a paywall.

    You can also reach out to anyone from a university, if you have such a contact - they almost always have network-wide subscriptions past these paywalls.

    @PublicByte Being in academia, you have targets to publish to well known, reputable journals - and they in turn publish behind the paywalls, not the academics. So unfortunately, that's not a practical option.
