LessWrong help desk - free paper downloads and more

post by jsalvatier · 2012-10-07T23:45:13.566Z · LW · GW · Legacy · 752 comments

Over the last year, VincentYu, gwern, myself and others have provided 132 academic papers for the LessWrong community (out of 152 requests, a 87% success rate) through the Free research, editing and articles thread. We originally intended to provide editing, research and general troubleshooting help, but article downloads are by far the most requested service.

If you're doing a LessWrong relevant project we want to help you. If you need help accessing a journal article or academic book chapter, we can get it for you. If you need some research or writing help, we can help there too.

Turnaround times for articles published in the last 20 years or so is usually less than a day. Older articles often take a couple days.

Please make new article requests in the comment section of this thread.

If you would like to help out with finding papers, please monitor this thread for requests. If you want to monitor via RSS like I do, Google Reader will give you the comment feed if you give it the URL for this thread (or use this link directly). 

If you have some special skills you want to volunteer, mention them in the comment section.

I note, by the way, that /r/scholar is also an excellent place to ask for papers. I've seen (and had) requests I thought near-impossible answered within an hour.

I have a big library of about 5,000 pdf's, with books (including textbooks) and papers in philosophy, psychology, statistics, computer science and a few other areas. The library is about 18 GB in size. If folks here can think of an easy way of sharing this material, I'd be happy to make it publicly available.

I've made a number of updates over the past weeks, so I thought I should write a brief new comment summarizing the material that is now available for download. There are two separate torrent files, both of which contain the entirety of my electronic library, comprising about 4,100 items mostly in pdf format.

One torrent contains all the files uncompressed. You can see the contents of the library and select specific files for downloading. Magnet URI:

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:BEDDF7A5647B634C179EA68EBBBAAA80967D9D1D&dn=LessWrong&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80%2fannounce&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.publicbt.com%3a80%2fannounce

The other torrent contains a single, compressed file, which is about 20% smaller in size. Choose this one if you want to download the entire library. Magnet URI:

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:1D845DB543FFF3DE83B66FAA595F1A3D9F42ED42&dn=Library.zip&tr=udp%3a//tracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80/announce

Good idea. I just created a torrent file. I̶t̶'̶s̶ ̶u̶n̶c̶o̶m̶p̶r̶e̶s̶s̶e̶d̶ ̶s̶o̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶c̶a̶n̶ ̶p̶i̶c̶k̶ ̶w̶h̶i̶c̶h̶ ̶P̶D̶F̶'̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶d̶o̶w̶n̶l̶o̶a̶d̶,̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶c̶a̶s̶e̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶d̶o̶n̶'̶t̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶d̶o̶w̶n̶l̶o̶a̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶w̶h̶o̶l̶e̶ ̶l̶i̶b̶r̶a̶r̶y̶. (It's now a compressed zip file; see update below.) Here's the magnet URI:

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:1D845DB543FFF3DE83B66FAA595F1A3D9F42ED42&dn=Library.zip&tr=udp%3a//tracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80/announce

Please note that many (~40%) of the books and articles included here were given to me by several different friends over the past few years. So although the stuff you own does say a lot about you, I'd like to ask those who decide to download this material to kindly abstain from making any strong inferences (flattering or unflattering) about me from the list of items in my library. ;-)

I hope to keep seeding indefinitely, but I can't guarantee this for the long term. So please seed, too, if you can.

One final thing: if you have a large library of files yourself, please consider sharing it with us!

UPDATE: the torrent became corrupted when I added new files to the directory (which I do regularly, since my library is constantly expanding). So I created a new torrent with a zipped file of the library at its current state. You won't be able to pick which pdfs to download, but at least the torrent will not become corrupted again. The magnet URI changed, so make sure you have the updated version, posted above.

2nd UPDATE: there are now two separate torrents; see here for details.

There are no seeds during the day (Australian time). And then I leave my computer on overnight and it only downloads an extra couple of percent. downloading at about 4kB/sec. Unlikely to be a problem on my end. Would be keen for increased seeding of this. And then I can split up the file, pick the good parts and then repackage it in a new LW/rationality torrent. :/ Just as soon as it gets seeded better.

I'd like to echo other folks' requests for seeds from anyone who has the whole thing. I am currently making very slow progress in discrete spurts in downloading this, at 45%.

Once I have the whole thing I am willing to work on doing something like this for the books in the library and/or support theduffman's proposal by seeding.

Google drive. It can be set so that a folder is only available to someone if you send them the link. If there isn't enough room on one account, make a couple different accounts and separate them by subject.

Thanks. Unfortunately Google Drive offers 5 GB of space only. Yes, in principle I could create four different accounts, but in practice this would be a hassle, since ideally I would want to keep the library updated and this would require me to switch accounts frequently. It would also be harder for visitors to access the material, since I really lack the time to sort thousands of files into separate subjects. I might consider this approach if there are no other options, but I'd strongly prefer to upload all the files to a single account.

A possible alternative: I could send people here invites to Dropbox and earn additional storage space. If sufficient folks sign up (~25), this would provide me with enough space to upload all of this material.

(Cited by: Strathern, Marilyn (1997). "'Improving ratings': audit in the British University system". European Review. John Wiley & Sons. 5 (3): 305–321. doi:10.1002/(SICI)1234-981X(199707)5:3<05::AID-EURO184>3.0.CO;2-4.)

Context: Looking for sources about the history of Goodhart's law, esp. as "quoted"/ paraphrased, seemingly by Strathern.

From Strathern's paper:
"When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure. The more a 2.1 examination performance becomes an expectation, the poorer it becomes as a discriminator of individual performances. Hoskin describes this as ‘Goodhart’s law’, after the latter’s observation on instruments for monetary control which lead to other devices for monetary flexibility having to be invented. However, targets that seem measurable become enticing tools for improvement."

Here.

Unfortunately, the $30 billion/year loss is not explained and no citation is given:

Pivotal to improving recovery will be making better decisions throughout field life. Such decisions can only be based on having accurate and current information, from both wells and facilities. However, today’s experience with such data is a barrier. If gathered at all, data are usually incomplete and often remains unverified and, therefore, unused.

Experts estimate that, as an industry, we waste roughly 25%—or approximately US$30 billion—of our annual upstream expenditures.

Providing timely access to integrated, reliable, verified data, information and knowledge is crucial to the effective decision-making that will ensure optimal exploitation of an asset.

Our poor experience with using large volumes of data in our industry is slowing the uptake of new technology that can offer significant benefits. The barriers grow when we confront changing our established work processes aso that we can move to the necessary level of interdisciplinary integration.

One possible attack for a citation is, besides the obvious searches for those two figures or looking for related government reports/statistics, is looking for a McKinsey report on that industry written before then; they're widely read but not always cited, and they have industry-wide views because of their prestige and numerous clients.

Yeah, I've had difficulty accessing theses as well. My roommate tells me that the reason is that nobody wants to access them because they're almost always just a set of previously published papers (in many fields you publish 3 papers and staple them together for a thesis). This suggests the alternative of finding the papers that make up the thesis. You'll miss out on the introduction by the author, but they may be a lot easier to get a hold of.

I've given up trying to predict people's reactions. Some researchers or post-grads, when I contact them, seem thrilled to answer any questions I have or provide unpublished data; other seem to completely ignore me and as far as I can tell, pretend the thesis never existed. I'll give a recent Evangelion example: http://eva.onegeek.org/pipermail/evangelion/2012-October/007214.html

I reviewed a like >200pg PhD thesis which as far as I can tell has been neither discussed nor cited anywhere online; I excerpt it, praise and criticize parts, point out several specific problems which could be fixed in it or places where new material would add substantially to her discussion, submit it to Reddit where it gets 3 praising comments. Then I ping her on Twitter and... nothing in almost a month despite occasional tweets posted by her.

I don't understand how she could not reply, if only to defend herself: she must have spent years working on the thesis, and given the lack of Google hits, I might be one of maybe 10-20 people in the world to ever read it. If I had spent years working on something and someone sent me such an email, I don't think I could ignore it: I'd be prostrate with joy that someone knowledgeable read it carefully, or I'd be berserk with rage that they would dare do anything but praise it and would reply tearing them a new one. Silence, however, I simply cannot understand.

The end result of PhD programs is a degree, and finishing a thesis is instrumental to this.The thesis might end up a sunk cost labor of hate that you just want to forget afterwards, even if it did take years, if you mostly just want the degree. Don't know how much this happens at PhD level.

A month is nothing. Especially if she only just graduated and is busy with post-thesis life.

If you take a topic seriously, if you've just spent several years making the effort to think about it and write about it at levels of rigor far beyond the casual standards of ordinary thought and communication, you may put off responding to someone's questions, precisely because you don't want to lower your standards again, and you don't immediately have the time to answer properly.

No, she was doing it while working as an ESL teacher and still working, according to her tweets. Has had time to continue low-quality anime blogging too.

There is no proper answer to several of my criticisms: she is simply flat out wrong or sloppy. Evangelion is one of the few topics where I acknowledge few peers and fewer superiors, and she is neither.

In that case, perhaps she agrees with your criticisms, but doesn't want to admit to being wrong.

comment by Plasmon · 2012-11-25T09:35:56.634Z · LW(p) · GW(p)

in many fields you publish 3 papers and staple them together for a thesis

The bureaucracy involved needs a way to check that the phd candidate is doing decent work (preferably something more objective than the promoter's say-so), and the scientific peer review process can be used for this purpose. Thus, phd candidates are often asked to produce some amount of papers and publish them (sometimes in journals with a specified minimal impact factor). Knowing how much work goes into the production of a paper, and how long the review process can take ( > 6 months is no exception), it would be unreasonable to also expect a fully original thesis. Ideally, but not always, the thesis expands somewhat on the previously-published papers.

  • I couldn't access the first thesis.

  • Second thesis. Hmm... unfortunately, the author ignored the past two decades of research using the Big Five and relied instead on personality typing.

(I think recent theses from most US institutions are available from the ProQuest database. I don't know any general way to get non-US theses.)

Thanks for the second; there's actually a surprising number of papers using MBTI in online education, it's really annoying. I may have to look into converting MBTI to Big Five if I do a meta-analysis.

I'm looking for a thesis by Bullock 2007, "Experiments on partisanship and public opinion: Party cues, false beliefs, and Bayesian updating" (may be accessible via Proquest).

I'm interested in it because I've come up with a Bayesian justification of the backfire effect, but it seems like Bullock may have covered it already in the last section. ;_;

EDIT: He did some interesting stuff in "Part 3, Bayesian Updating of Political Beliefs: Normative and Descriptive Properties", but not exactly what I have in mind.

Entirely possible. But that will make it a lot harder to collect all the stories, because you need to find titles for each of them before anyone can retrieve them from a database. This is one of the situations where you may be best off just biting the bullet and buying or borrowing a copy or visiting your local library (which presumably gets Times).

Santos, Santos, and Shimony, "Implicitly preserving semantics during incremental knowledge base acquisition under uncertainty".

Santos, Wilkinson, and Santos, "Fusing multiple Bayesian knowledge sources".

The first describes a formalism called the Bayesian knowledge base that is more compact than the usual conditional probability table approach to a Bayesian network, along with other advantages; the second presents an algorithm for aggregating representations in this formalism.

I ran across this in a book on adversarial reasoning, and haven't found anything about it on LW (at least, not apparent from search results). Are paper summaries (e.g., explaining concepts like BKBs) suitable discussion posts?

The PDC appears to be offline, and although wayback machine has the Tulane page here, it doesn't seem like it has the pdf linked to by philpapers. Hopefully someone else can work with this.

Make sure you're not looking at a different Electronics, it describes at least two periodicals - I want the old trade magazine, the one that published Moore's law, not any academic journals.

But no, I'm not sure of the volume number, that was just my best guess. I'm working off a snippet in Google Books describing a reprint notice that year for the original article.

As some of you probably know, Google Books restricts access to certain books to users with a US IP address. I tried to circumvent this restriction with a number of different proxy servers, but had no success. This is the book (or, rather, journal) I'm trying to download (PDF link on the left sidebar). If you live in the States and could download it for me, that would be great. If you could explain to me how to download this or any other book similarly restricted, that would be even better.

If you want it in formatted PDF though, only Springer has it afaict, so someone else will have to help you there.

This appears to be all that exists for 3 (page 2): http://jech.bmj.com/content/suppl/2003/09/23/57.9.DC1/Abstracts.pdf

It was so small that after finding it I kept looking for a good 15 minutes, but I'm pretty sure the abstract is all there is and the full article was never published (the first author doesn't list it on his personal page, and all the references seem to be to the abstract).

Thanks for looking. It seems that it's another one of the many papers which get presented as an abstract and never published ("Full publication of results initially presented in abstracts (Review)").

I have a proxy so I have access to anything for which IP-based authentication is sufficient, which is a lot of the regular academic journals - but to get ILL and a number of the more expensive databases like LexisNexis, I would need a valid UWash username/password (which I don't have).

I'm not sure how "LessWrong relevant" philosophy of religion is considered to be, but I could use having access to the section on Aquinas from William Lane Craig's book The Cosmological Argument from Plato to Leibniz.

While doing research for paper I plan to submit for publication, I discovered a talk given by Dr. Glimcher entitled "Neurobiological Evidence of a Cardinal Utility Signal: Implications for Welfare in Political Economy." My paper is on a remarkably similar topic, so it looks like exactly what I'm looking for! However, I cannot find a copy of the lecture online, nor a copy of the sources he used.

Reviewing his publications has gotten me a lot of information, most importantly this 2012 meta-analysis. But the paper doesn't use the term "cardinal utility," so I am unsure if I am supposed to read between the lines or if I am misunderstanding the relevance of the data.

I intend to email him to ask for sources for the lecture and to ask if I'm interpreting his work correctly, but I am unsure how to best do so. Can anyone with experience emailing authors have advice? I'd like to avoid a faux pas.

EDIT: she replied with 2 papers covering half the thesis; a quarter of the thesis was just a replication of a previous study, and the remaining quarter is under peer review as a new paper so she didn't provide it. Satisfactory.

This one is a challenge.

I'd like to do a stylometrics analysis of the 2009 leaked live-action Death Note movie script, ostensibly by the Parlapanides brothers (an expansion of my old short essay on its authorship). The only other public writing I know of by them is the 2000 movie Everything For A Reason and the 2011 movie Immortals. I've found subtitles for Immortals without a problem, but I've been entirely unable to find any script or screenplay for either (an no subs for Everything For A Reason). Can anyone find it?
