How do I find a free copy of academic papers?

But it's locked behind a paywall.
There are more than a few ways of finding free alternatives.
Try these :
1. Search for the free alternative via Google
1. Select full title of report or paper
2. Right-click and select "Search Google for ".."
3. Click results from free academic sites such as www.academia.edu
2. Ask the universe for a free copy
The latest method is to tweet or FB a link with the hashtag #icanhazpdf with your email so others can send it to you directly, see this explainer. The BBC reports concerns at breaches of copyright, but others feel such distribution is justified under fair use.
2. Use a free academic paper website
