Poll Results: Access to Journals

The majority of respondents said that they either could not or did not know how to access most articles they need for debate research. As Dino de la O pointed out on our Facebook page, it’s likely that these results are actually skewed towards greater access to journal articles than is representative of debaters in general.

So, what can we, as a community, do to address this problem? How can we increase debaters’ access to scholarly research without, say, illegally sharing library subscriptions or subscriber-only content?
