The "Papers" page is a library of up to date research papers on subjects which you may find useful when creating articles for us, or doing your own studies.

In addition, there is also some helpful instructions on several ways to gain access to any papers you may need.

  • If you have any questions about our library you should contact our lead research librarian LilianaUmbra, who is responsible for managing research requests and this pages content.

Finding papers

  • Google Scholar indexes articles, shows citations and "cited bys", impact factor etc.
  • Pubmed offers more granular search options.

Getting access

Journal articles are frequently paywalled, requiring an obscene ~$40 per article to see anything besides their abstracts. Here's some ways around:

  • If you're a student, your university should have journal access for all IPs on its network. If you make friends with a student, you could ask to borrow their login.
  • Even if you're not a student, you can often get a library card at a university library. University library computers will have journal access, so if the library is open to the public you can surf there and save articles to a USB stick.
  • Sci-Hub is a proxy that circumvents paywalls for journal access. You can tack on the end of the domain name for a URL you want to access. For instance, if you wanted to go to, change it to Note that sci-hub is frequently under attack and the legality of using it varies by region, ymmv.
  • Library Genesis has a repository of scientific papers. Unlike Sci-Hub, it does not let you access papers that don't already exist in the LibGen repository. However, it is a useful backup if Sci-Hub is down, as Sci-Hub stores a copy of every paper it downloads to LibGen.
  • Using Sci-Hub Links extension for Chrome and Firefox can be used to automatically translate DOI to sci-hub links
  • The Scholar subreddit lets you post requests for articles. Volunteers will find and upload articles for you, bypassing the paywall.
  • Arxiv hosts free pre-publication articles, but very few in the biology realm.
  • Due to the volatile nature of which domains are working for sci-hub currently, if any links are broken simply replace the domain of the link with a working one. .tw works as of 12/07/2018.
