Can someone grab this paper for me?

Put simply, I was involved with this a few years back with alot of material taken from my PhD work and that from my two predecessors. However, I note it's been upgraded with an extra author added.

I would like to have a glance to see what has changed, however, not being in academia now I can't download it.

Much appreciated,

Ian

I tried but it won't let me... is that the older version on ResearchGate?

No, the link above is to the newer version.

I'm gathering Elsevier couldn't contact anyone and thus involved the new author.

If the link doesn't work, not to worry as I have a plan B.

It won't let me get it either, sorry - my uni is listed as having access but then it still wants me to pay for the article.

Sorry only able to download the original version I think-not the updated. (These authors I.A. Inman, P.S. Datta, H.L. Du, C. Kübel and P.D. Wood)

If you are one of the authors named on the paper, then could you contact the journal and get a link to it? Maybe that's your plan B!

Yes, I am one of the named authors. In simple terms, the amendment has occurred without my knowledge of that of the other authors. However, all of the original authors have moved on and I'm guessing that the journal has been unable to contact any of us.

They've therefore apparently employed an extra expert in the field has been brought in to carry out updates and amendments.

I'm not bothered as such, though it would be nice to see what amendmends have been made. I simply want to add it to my CV as I've found myself out of work again (a factor I'll address in a separate post and the reason for my sudden reappearance on this group) and it would be an extra selling point.

I'd just email the new author and ask if you could have a copy or the proof version.

Hi Ian, my university apparently only can access the citations page, the abstract, outline of table of contents and I can see the list of figures, tables, appendices. So it lets me into the first page and appendices but not the full article. For what it is worth, this was included at the bottom of the citation page but I think you have this already.

Change History: September 2015. F. T. Mahi added keywords; expanded text with additional review materials; added Figure; and updated the list of references.

Hi Ian,

I gave it a go as well through two different accounts but can't access it.

Someone could do a document delivery through their uni in a similar field?

I've tried everything to be honest including trying to locate this " F.T. Mahi". I found reference to him / her at Trinity College Dublin, however, he / she is not listed on the research staff there.

In fact, there's no trace apart from this person amending other people's work to go into "Materials Science and Materials Engineering, 2016". Strange.

I'm going to leave this be until I'm back in work then possibly have done and pay to download it.

I would have thought that the journal would give you access, since you're an author? I've only got limited experience of being published, but have been sent links to papers I'm on so that I can share them with others - is it possible to request this from the journal?

I think because we've all moved on from our original positions, Elsevier couldn't contact any of us. It is as simple as that.

I am going to contact the journal directly, but because I wasn't involved in the amended version think the request for a copy might be turned down.

I'm familiar with journal publication and know to expect a copy under normal circumstances, but am finding this current situation strange.
