 +===== Accessing scientific literature =====
 +
 +There are 3 common ways to obtain a full-length scientific article:
 +  - Directly from the website of the journal. This works for open-access journals and journals to which ETH subscribes. For the latter, you need to access from an ETH IP address (at ETH or through VPN).
 +  - For typically older articles, from the main Library (you can request a photocopy on [[http://​www.nebis.ch|NEBIS]]).
 +  - For articles neither online nor at the ETH library (no subscription),​ you can send a copy request to the ETH Library ([[http://​www.ethbib.ethz.ch/​cgi-bin/​ilv/​ilv_copy.pl?​LANG=en|Request Form]]). They will get it for you through partner libraries or by buying the article directly from the publisher.
