Academic common room
Institutional access to a journal

This seems like a good place to ask... I'm trying to get hold of a couple of articles from the journal Translation Studies, published by Taylor and Francis. My instituition doesn't subscribe and it's proving tricky to find somewhere here (not in the UK) that does. If anyone does have access, any chance I could PM you a couple of titles?

We haven't got it, but in this sort of situation I'd just email the authors (assuming they are relatively new articles?)

Have tried for you, but can't find the journal. I'm in a different field though so it may be my access is limited to relevant journals.

Thanks both. I'll drop the authors a line - I always think it's a bit cheeky to do so but I suppose it's the easiest solution.

People love knowing that other people want to read their paper!
(I do, anyway.)

It looks as though I've got access to issues from recent years. Come back to me if you don't get joy from the authors - I'm away till next week so can't do anything beforehand.
Two other strategies for anyone reading this: try googling the title in normal google (not scholar) set inside quotes. You may find a grey copy somewhere.
And of course check their institutional repository.

I can also get them from 2008 onwards. I'm working tonight if you want to PM me.

Thanks everyone, I haven't responded because I wanted to see if the authors responded to my emails first. Fortunately they've come up trumps :-) so all is well!
