Over the last year, VincentYu, gwern, myself and others have provided 132 academic papers for the LessWrong community (out of 152 requests, a 87% success rate) through the Free research, editing and articles thread. We originally intended to provide editing, research and general troubleshooting help, but article downloads are by far the most requested service.

If you're doing a LessWrong relevant project we want to help you. If you need help accessing a journal article or academic book chapter, we can get it for you. If you need some research or writing help, we can help there too.

Turnaround times for articles published in the last 20 years or so is usually less than a day. Older articles often take a couple days.

Please make new article requests in the comment section of this thread.

If you would like to help out with finding papers, please monitor this thread for requests. If you want to monitor via RSS like I do, Google Reader will give you the comment feed if you give it the URL for this thread (or use this link directly). 

If you have some special skills you want to volunteer, mention them in the comment section.

I note, by the way, that /r/scholar is also an excellent place to ask for papers. I've seen (and had) requests I thought near-impossible answered within an hour.

I have a big library of about 5,000 pdf's, with books (including textbooks) and papers in philosophy, psychology, statistics, computer science and a few other areas. The library is about 18 GB in size. If folks here can think of an easy way of sharing this material, I'd be happy to make it publicly available.

7Pablo
I've made a number of updates over the past weeks, so I thought I should write a brief new comment summarizing the material that is now available for download. There are two separate torrent files, both of which contain the entirety of my electronic library, comprising about 4,100 items mostly in pdf format. One torrent contains all the files uncompressed. You can see the contents of the library and select specific files for downloading. Magnet URI: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:BEDDF7A5647B634C179EA68EBBBAAA80967D9D1D&dn=LessWrong&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80%2fannounce&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.publicbt.com%3a80%2fannounce The other torrent contains a single, compressed file, which is about 20% smaller in size. Choose this one if you want to download the entire library. Magnet URI: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:1D845DB543FFF3DE83B66FAA595F1A3D9F42ED42&dn=Library.zip&tr=udp%3a//tracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80/announce

I know it's old, now, but can you seed the latter again? The swarm's missing about 9% right now.
0[anonymous]
I'm still seeding. If anyone is having difficulties downloading the file(s), please let me know.
0fiddlemath
Actually, I have the whole thing now, and seed it when I can. My, the internet's a powerful thing when used properly. :)
2roland
Is there a way to download individual contents without downloading the whole 15 Gb zip file?
0Pablo
Yes: see here.

BitTorrent. A bit torrent with all papers and books shared for free on LW ever would be really neat especially if we had people share private collections.
7Pablo
Good idea. I just created a torrent file. I̶t̶'̶s̶ ̶u̶n̶c̶o̶m̶p̶r̶e̶s̶s̶e̶d̶ ̶s̶o̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶c̶a̶n̶ ̶p̶i̶c̶k̶ ̶w̶h̶i̶c̶h̶ ̶P̶D̶F̶'̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶d̶o̶w̶n̶l̶o̶a̶d̶,̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶c̶a̶s̶e̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶d̶o̶n̶'̶t̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶d̶o̶w̶n̶l̶o̶a̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶w̶h̶o̶l̶e̶ ̶l̶i̶b̶r̶a̶r̶y̶. (It's now a compressed zip file; see update below.) Here's the magnet URI: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:1D845DB543FFF3DE83B66FAA595F1A3D9F42ED42&dn=Library.zip&tr=udp%3a//tracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80/announce Please note that many (~40%) of the books and articles included here were given to me by several different friends over the past few years. So although the stuff you own does say a lot about you, I'd like to ask those who decide to download this material to kindly abstain from making any strong inferences (flattering or unflattering) about me from the list of items in my library. ;-) I hope to keep seeding indefinitely, but I can't guarantee this for the long term. So please seed, too, if you can. One final thing: if you have a large library of files yourself, please consider sharing it with us! UPDATE: the torrent became corrupted when I added new files to the directory (which I do regularly, since my library is constantly expanding). So I created a new torrent with a zipped file of the library at its current state. You won't be able to pick which pdfs to download, but at least the torrent will not become corrupted again. The magnet URI changed, so make sure you have the updated version, posted above. 2nd UPDATE: there are now two separate torrents; see here for details.
1theduffman
Could you please resume seeding this library so that I can download it and help? This seems potentially useful.
0Pablo
Please update the magnet URI. Let me know if you are still encountering problems.
1theduffman
There are no seeds during the day (Australian time). And then I leave my computer on overnight and it only downloads an extra couple of percent. downloading at about 4kB/sec. Unlikely to be a problem on my end. Would be keen for increased seeding of this. And then I can split up the file, pick the good parts and then repackage it in a new LW/rationality torrent. :/ Just as soon as it gets seeded better.
0Pablo
I've now created a separate torrent which allows for selective downloading of individual files. See here.
0AlexSchell
I'd like to echo other folks' requests for seeds from anyone who has the whole thing. I am currently making very slow progress in discrete spurts in downloading this, at 45%. Once I have the whole thing I am willing to work on doing something like this for the books in the library and/or support theduffman's proposal by seeding.
0Pablo
I'll keep seeding this indefinitely, so you should be able to download the entire library eventually. However, if you'd like to download specific files, there's now a separate torrent which contains all the files in the original, uncompressed format. See here.
0AlexSchell
Okay. I wrongly guessed that there was no one who had the whole thing and was seeding.
0David_Gerard
No seeds, none for a while in fact.
2Pablo
Please update the magnet URI. Let me know if you are still encountering problems.
1David_Gerard

Google drive. It can be set so that a folder is only available to someone if you send them the link. If there isn't enough room on one account, make a couple different accounts and separate them by subject.
1Pablo
Thanks. Unfortunately Google Drive offers 5 GB of space only. Yes, in principle I could create four different accounts, but in practice this would be a hassle, since ideally I would want to keep the library updated and this would require me to switch accounts frequently. It would also be harder for visitors to access the material, since I really lack the time to sort thousands of files into separate subjects. I might consider this approach if there are no other options, but I'd strongly prefer to upload all the files to a single account. A possible alternative: I could send people here invites to Dropbox and earn additional storage space. If sufficient folks sign up (~25), this would provide me with enough space to upload all of this material.
0[anonymous]
I haven't signed up either.

According to Welsh et al. (2002), this paper estimates that "biases such as anchoring and overconfidence contribute to a US$30 billion/year loss in the oil and gas industry."

1VincentYu
Here. Unfortunately, the $30 billion/year loss is not explained and no citation is given:
3gwern
One possible attack for a citation is, besides the obvious searches for those two figures or looking for related government reports/statistics, is looking for a McKinsey report on that industry written before then; they're widely read but not always cited, and they have industry-wide views because of their prestige and numerous clients.

Oh you're right, they've got the same DOI number, just different titles.

(If anyone knows a general way to get theses when the obvious download fails, I'd appreciate knowing. They seem pretty hard to get.)

2jsalvatier
Yeah, I've had difficulty accessing theses as well. My roommate tells me that the reason is that nobody wants to access them because they're almost always just a set of previously published papers (in many fields you publish 3 papers and staple them together for a thesis). This suggests the alternative of finding the papers that make up the thesis. You'll miss out on the introduction by the author, but they may be a lot easier to get a hold of.
1gwern
That works sometimes, but not usually for the theses I seem to be interested in - for example, the iodine thesis has no preceding papers or else I would've found those first before running into the thesis.
0jsalvatier
Interesting. It seems odd that they would publish only in as a thesis given that they have such a reputation for not being read.
8gwern
I've given up trying to predict people's reactions. Some researchers or post-grads, when I contact them, seem thrilled to answer any questions I have or provide unpublished data; other seem to completely ignore me and as far as I can tell, pretend the thesis never existed. I'll give a recent Evangelion example: http://eva.onegeek.org/pipermail/evangelion/2012-October/007214.html I reviewed a like >200pg PhD thesis which as far as I can tell has been neither discussed nor cited anywhere online; I excerpt it, praise and criticize parts, point out several specific problems which could be fixed in it or places where new material would add substantially to her discussion, submit it to Reddit where it gets 3 praising comments. Then I ping her on Twitter and... nothing in almost a month despite occasional tweets posted by her. I don't understand how she could not reply, if only to defend herself: she must have spent years working on the thesis, and given the lack of Google hits, I might be one of maybe 10-20 people in the world to ever read it. If I had spent years working on something and someone sent me such an email, I don't think I could ignore it: I'd be prostrate with joy that someone knowledgeable read it carefully, or I'd be berserk with rage that they would dare do anything but praise it and would reply tearing them a new one. Silence, however, I simply cannot understand.
6Risto_Saarelma
The end result of PhD programs is a degree, and finishing a thesis is instrumental to this.The thesis might end up a sunk cost labor of hate that you just want to forget afterwards, even if it did take years, if you mostly just want the degree. Don't know how much this happens at PhD level.
6katydee
My hypothesis would be ugh fields.
0Mitchell_Porter
A month is nothing. Especially if she only just graduated and is busy with post-thesis life. If you take a topic seriously, if you've just spent several years making the effort to think about it and write about it at levels of rigor far beyond the casual standards of ordinary thought and communication, you may put off responding to someone's questions, precisely because you don't want to lower your standards again, and you don't immediately have the time to answer properly.
2gwern
No, she was doing it while working as an ESL teacher and still working, according to her tweets. Has had time to continue low-quality anime blogging too. There is no proper answer to several of my criticisms: she is simply flat out wrong or sloppy. Evangelion is one of the few topics where I acknowledge few peers and fewer superiors, and she is neither.
2Kindly
In that case, perhaps she agrees with your criticisms, but doesn't want to admit to being wrong.
0Plasmon
The bureaucracy involved needs a way to check that the phd candidate is doing decent work (preferably something more objective than the promoter's say-so), and the scientific peer review process can be used for this purpose. Thus, phd candidates are often asked to produce some amount of papers and publish them (sometimes in journals with a specified minimal impact factor). Knowing how much work goes into the production of a paper, and how long the review process can take ( > 6 months is no exception), it would be unreasonable to also expect a fully original thesis. Ideally, but not always, the thesis expands somewhat on the previously-published papers.
2VincentYu
* I couldn't access the first thesis. * Second thesis. Hmm... unfortunately, the author ignored the past two decades of research using the Big Five and relied instead on personality typing. (I think recent theses from most US institutions are available from the ProQuest database. I don't know any general way to get non-US theses.)
1gwern
Thanks for the second; there's actually a surprising number of papers using MBTI in online education, it's really annoying. I may have to look into converting MBTI to Big Five if I do a meta-analysis.
