Closed My TOPIC
« on: April 13, 2006, 02:53:03 PM »
Hey,

kk i ealier opened a topic in which ..qoute

"im trying to find online journals on rubber technology, such as natural rubber making etc. Ive searched but all the online sites want subscriptions , which want money $$

does any one know where i can get free journals"


i then got the reply from mitch...qoute

"Soliciting copyright material is against forum policy. Topic Closed."


now i need to ask,,,even though journals are copyright, there are alot of journals that may be freely read by the public, and so copyright shouldnt take into affect unless the journal is copied,hence copyright.
all i was asking was if there were any sites that had journals on the subject, how does that Infringe your forum policy? please correct me if im wrong.


not jumping to conclusions but i think your forum policy needs a rethink. after all this is a forum to discuss issues.

and plus you closed the topic, not very fair

go to your university library.

you should be able to view online journals using computers at your university library.

unfortunately, most research materials are copyrighted.

hey,,

well I'm not in university,I'm doing my A levels and not sure if ill be allowed access to a uni library?

Ive tried and asked my local  library for material on the subject with no luck, which is a bit strange as its a main library.

I'm not sure on copy right regulations but there are websites that allow the public to freely read their journals, i just cant find them. i  previously wrote an essay on pesticides and there were many journals available on the internet

Does any one know any sites i may visit?

p.s thanks for the advice geodome

Any local science research university will have a Chemistry section packed with books and journals for you to read. They were created before the internet and have much more information in them then you'll find on the internet. Local public libraries will not have anything you are looking for.

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

Personally, I think that if the original question was 'Where can I find online journals that are legal to access for free?' then that should be ok.  If the question really is 'Where can I break in and get pirate copies?', then not ok.  The OP wasn't too clear on this point, however.

I believe the threadstarter wants to access research material.

Since it is forum policy to not  facilitate illegal access to copyrighted materials, we should advise him on how to obtain copyrighted research material via free legitimate means. Ref: http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?topic=3190.0

My university library allows a member of the public to access the library provided he signs the visitor's book. He must be able to prove his identity by showing identification documentation such as the passport or driving license. However, he cannot borrow books.

hey all,,

well i genuinely and legitimately only want to read  any journals on rubber technology, i have to anyways as I'm writing a essay on Natural and synthetic rubber for chemistry coursework... Resources is really vital.

and to be frank i ccouldn't even dream of copying any material as it will be moderatedby the examiners, and they will probally catch me out.

i was basically hoping to find information on the chemical make up of rubber...polymers structures etc.

anyways, going to alibrary at a uni will prob be my best shot at getting any journals

Are you sure you need access to scientific journals? No idea what's your level of education, but you may be dissapointed by the papers - chances are they are so specialized they will be of no use for you. I bet it may be enough if you will look at some good textbook on polymers and then - knowing what keywords to look for - check google scholar or something similar.

Check this post:

and fetch both papers in pdf, you will see what I mean.

hey,,

thanks for that link, although i bit out of my context,

However its actually made me think that i could explain rubber technology through tyres, synthetic rubber especially.
