Oh yeah, that title makes me think this will be a good one.

@jordan31 Oh, good. Not even the contact details of the authors are freely available on the site. The delicious irony...

@elyukayee lol yeah most academic stuff is not free. There are a couple free academic databases out there but you have to search for them. Sadly I don't think the articles/journals are much in quality or quantity since they can't access the more professional databases.

@jordan31 Depends on how you go about obtaining it. Going straight to a journal will lead to a paywall, but most academics and researchers will send you a free copy of a paper they wrote if you ask.

@elyukayee That's not a bad deal. Also, a lot of colleges allow the public who is NOT enrolled to access the databases through campus computers. So that is another option.
