Awesome! Was a bit sad when I finished uni and couldn't access articles anymore.

It would be great if we could abandon the traditional publishers/platforms for this entirely, unfortunately for most academics in the west, that would be career suicide.

The access to articles is a small part of the modern publication/access platform - so much more is tied up in what goes on behind the scenes, which is what allows impact metrics to be calculated.

As for the actual copyright, most editors don't give a shit about that - otherwise theses by publication wouldn't exist. It's usually trivial to get a pre-press copy of a paper directly from the author (most put them online anyway, and google scholar does a pretty good job of indexing that).

The unfortunate reality is, that publishing is expensive - and while there is room to improve that, the price differential between submitting your work to open access journals, which often cost 10x as much or more to publish in than subscription journals, highlights that pretty starkly.
I think it's lint.

I put in Metrosideros Molecular clock Pacific into the search and got several pages of google results for scholarly papers- some spot on, some dealing with other species apart from pohutakawa- so that was pretty general and fairly successful. It did take around 30 seconds though.

I find a paper I want on google, go to the point where it would normally make me pay for it, copy in that link and then after a captcha it gives me the paper.
