I'm in need of a few articles which I can't get a hold of (damn paywalls). So any help at all with any of them would be greatly appreciated.

It could depend on your field of study but I know that in Humanities (in my experience anyway) it's not a requirement to have your MA finished before applying for a PhD. The more of it you have completed the better though, and even if you're only awaiting the outcome of your dissertation other candidates with a completed MA will be preferred over you. As far as funding goes you'll most likely be out of contention without a completed (and high-scoring) MA in the bag.
Like I said, this is true for Humanities, but your industry experience could well make up for an incomplete MA.
Firstly, find a relevant and reputable journal which has a track record of publishing similar papers (e.g. on the Industrial Revolution, such as 'Economic History' journal). Then find out the 'notes for contributors' which should include what the journal is looking for in a submission, along with the format which they would like it in (footnotes or endnotes, how they want you to cite your primary sources, etc) and word-count. These notes should be on the journal's website.
After you've written your proposed article and formatted it in-line with the journal's required style, then email (or send a hard-copy, or both, depending on what they ask for) it to the address provided; usually the editor.
After that wait.... often for a long time. Peer review will then be done and you'll be informed of the outcome which will either be a 'no', a 'yes', or a 'please re-submit after revising in-line with peer-reviewer's comments'.
Also, the fact you're not affiliated with a University shouldn't matter as the peer-review is often done anonymously - so if the work is good enough it'll be accepted regardless of your position/qualifications.
That's my experience of it anyway. Hope it helps.
Hi all, can anybody get a hold of the following? My library's collection only goes back to the year after this one's publication...
Author: B. D. Shaw
Article: “Soldiers and Society: The Army in Numidia,”
Journal: Opus: Rivista internazionale per la storia economica e sociale dell'antichità,
vol. 2.1 (1983), pp. 133-159
Hi all, I was wondering if anybody had access to Valerie Hope's article:
'Constructing Roman identity: Funerary monuments and social structure in the Roman world' in the Journal 'Mortality: Promoting the interdisciplinary study of death and dying' (Volume 2, Issue 2, 1997: pp.103-121).
Many thanks, I'm finding it impossible to get ahold of so any help is much appreciated,
I'm afraid it's that time again, another request for articles. There are six in all, but there's no rush to get them.
Many thanks in advance, and I genuinely envy your ability to access such articles whilst I am still stuck in the netherworld of the independent researcher.
