We hope you enjoy your newfound POWER — and these external tools:

  • Google Scholar Button (Chrome, Firefox) searches your highlighted text in Google Scholar. Easily check academic citations!
  • and can save permanent copies of webpages. Never lose a crank website or racist Tweet ever again!

You know[edit]

Paywalled studies, like the one you mentioned, can often be read using Sci-Hub. Sci-Hub entries shouldn't be directly used on citations (copyright reasons), or probably even linked on talk pages, but many people use the site to read such papers. Chillpilled (talk) 18:35, 28 July 2023 (UTC)

Good information to know, thanks. BobJohnson (talk) 18:40, 28 July 2023 (UTC)
Yes, Sci-HubWikipedia is blocked in some countries because of copyright lawsuits. Bongolian (talk) 20:09, 28 July 2023 (UTC)
It's sometimes blocked on the ISP level as well. I know some British ISPs do this. In such cases people use Tor, VPN/proxies, or bots on Telegram which retrieve papers. Chillpilled (talk) 20:38, 28 July 2023 (UTC)
