Request It from the Author

Most publishers allow responsible sharing of your own publications. One way to get an article is to contact an author and ask for a PDF of a reprint. The author’s name and institution (if available) are usually shown on the preview page of the article. Some authors are open to receiving requests for articles via social networking sites where researchers share their work, such as, ResearchGate, Mendeley, and HumanitiesCommons.

Alternatively, you can make a request to the author via Twitter using the hashtag #icanhazpdf with a link to the publication you need.
