My hope is to help people – especially those researching medical issues – find the information they need without spending thousands of dollars to do it.
Step 1 – Finding relevant articles Before doing anything else, you must first locate papers relevant to your research topic.
The second full-text link – the one associated with “Managing care through the air” – is a fine example of how Google Scholar can help you find papers.
Trying to access that paper through its title link takes you to a “sign in to purchase this article” page.
On the one hand, the Internet makes it possible to track down just about any research paper imaginable, whether it’s a paper from the turn of the century or one in pre-publication stages.
Unfortunately, this excitement is often tempered by frustration because access to most research papers costs a ridiculous amount of money.
Sometimes Google will link you to copies of a paper that may not have been obtained legally.
Oftentimes these are hosted on questionable non-English sites.
Unfortunately, the cost for accessing that article is USD.
For that price, you may as well buy a 330-page non-fiction book on the topic (which was published late last year, so it’s even up-to-date).
