Academic twitter is talking about sharing documents and open access... well, here's my two cents. ASK FOR PAPERS. Academia is a conversation and we all want to be a part of it. Email that academic and see if they'll share. Bear in mind 1/4
we don't get any money for publishing articles in journals (all the money is profit for the publishers) so ASK US. Scared to ask? Here's a document with a form email you can use, along with some notes: 2/4
Personally, I absolutely love receiving emails asking for papers. It means that someone wants to read what I wrote and, I assume, wants to use it in their own work. Which is exactly why I wrote it in the first place - to be part of that conversation. I'll send my work to... 3/4
ANYONE! Just ask me. And most academics are equally keen to share their work. What's the worst that could happen? They say no? Their loss. Go well, academics! 4/4 #AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter #openaccess #academickindness
