One very bad thing about scientific papers being behind paywalls is that (competing) pseudoscience isn’t behind paywalls, so it’s easier to find misinformation online than to find facts.


@Petzlux If you can get the name of the professor or academic who wrote the paper that's behind the paywall, you can often email them and ask for the paper and they'll send it over! this obviously doesn't solve the problem of easy access, but it's something that is done.
