LessWrong help desk - free paper downloads and more

36 Post author: jsalvatier 07 October 2012 11:45PM

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.

Paper 9 has just been posted.

Comment author: Pablo_Stafforini 09 October 2012 03:31:13PM *  6 points [-]

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.

Comment author: Pablo_Stafforini 29 November 2012 02:55:33AM *  5 points [-]

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

Goode, P. (2002). Connecting with the reservoir. Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association Journal, 42(2).

According to Welsh et al. (2002), this paper estimates that "biases such as anchoring and overconfidence contribute to a US$30 billion/year loss in the oil and gas industry."

Comment author: VincentYu 28 November 2012 05:15:25PM *  1 point [-]

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.

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

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.

Thanks for the offer Michelle! Either 1 - monitor these comments and wait for someone to ask for help (I use RSS to do that) or 2 - I can remember that you offered to help and can let you know when someone offers.

Unfortunately, we've only had a few requests for that kind of help. I might use it in a while, though.

(If anyone knows a general way to get theses when the obvious download fails, I'd appreciate knowing. They seem pretty hard to get.)

Comment author: jsalvatier 24 November 2012 08:09:22PM 2 points [-]

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.

Comment author: gwern 24 November 2012 10:23:44PM 1 point [-]

That works sometimes, but not usually for the theses I seem to be interested in - for example, the iodine thesis has no preceding papers or else I would've found those first before running into the thesis.

Comment author: VincentYu 24 November 2012 02:47:04PM 1 point [-]
  • 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.)

Comment author: gwern 24 November 2012 05:23:59PM 1 point [-]

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.

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.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't VincentYu provide #1 2 days ago?

Ken Binmore & Hyun Song Shin. Algorithmic knowledge and game theory. (Chapter 9 of Knowledge, Belief, and Strategic Interaction by Cristina Bicchieri.)

EDIT: Actually, I'd be pretty happy to see any paper containing both the phrases "common knowledge" and "Löb's theorem". This particular paper is probably not the only one.

Sorry, can't get it. There's a Google Books version you might be able to use, but the UWash access is only to a physical copy.

As for your edit, well,

turn up some things that might be useful.

Thanks for looking! I'll try to get my hands on a physical copy, as the Google Books version has highly distracting page omissions.

Could you check the volume number and year? That combination doesn't match the library records on WorldCat.

Comment author: gwern 13 June 2013 12:42:57AM 0 points [-]

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.
