I'm a person that thinks it's absolutely ridiculous that you run into many pay walls for research that was funded by government or from a public hospital. I believe in the complete free dissemination of healthcare treatment knowledge - the current best practice. Having the knowledge makes us better caregivers, patients and advocates. Not having the information makes us a slave to the system.
Here are two websites that you can use to get free research articles.
Step 1. Find the research article that is behind a paywall. What you will see is the DOI. The DOI will look something like this - DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa1503747
Step 2. Get the DOI and put it into one of these two web sites. booksc.xyz/ or sci-hub.tw/
Step 3. Enjoy the "free research" that you PAID for through taxation or insurance costs.
If the DOI does not work, just copy/paste the entire URL into the search bar. So you can just "nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/N... use something like that. I would try the DOI first.
