FREE ACCESS from ASHA on @WeSpeechies' Request

As a curator, you can

Searching and Browsing

To search for ASHA articles to choose from, go to the ASHAwire Advanced Search. This allows you limit your search to relevant titles.

When composing search terms, 'think narrow', and 'think broad'.

  • What is your topic?
  • Are there key-words, other than the 'topic heading', that will help you to find relevant research?
  • Can you search by an ‘author’ that you know writes in the topic area?

You can also Browse the ASHAwire Topics.

Spend about 30 minutes searching for relevant articles.

HERE'S WHAT TO DO

Make ONE list

Make a list of your articles, to be requested by the administrators, in Alphabetical Order (by surname of first author), in plain text (no italics, bold, underlining, colour, endnote tags, etc.), and send it to us at least two weeks before you are due to curate. Make sure the title is listed EXACTLY as it appears in ASHAwire.

Carnaby, 2012 Food for Thought: Importance of a Clinical Exam/Cranial Nerve Assessment

Clark and Solomon, 2012 Muscle Tone and the Speech-Language Pathologist: Definitions, Neurophysiology, Assessment, and Interventions

2. OTHER PUBLISHERS

MAKING A REQUEST for @WeSpeechies to seek free access for a publication from a Publisher (Paywalled articles / book chapters).

Paywalled (Subscription only) Articles

From time to time, a @WeSpeechies curator will have a burning desire to discuss a ‘paywalled’ journal article in their topic week. In order to enable our followers to read the article, and to join in on the discussion, we make requests to publishers to ‘free up’ access to the article for a limited period of two weeks.

The entire process of requesting takes us two weeks, so we need this request from you as soon as possible, at least one month before your curating week.

@WeSpeechies like to support increased access to high quality evidence, so we endeavor to liaise with publishers to increase access of our followers to literature. Not only do we make a formal request of the publisher, but we notify the authors to let them know, and chase up Marketing divisions in order to have the articles freed up as agreed in time for the curating week.

We have a high criteria of quality on articles to be requested for ‘freeing up’ from the paywall, and several conditions for the requests to be made:

  • The article is in an international peer reviewed journal.
  • The article is directly relevant to your topic week.
  • The article is dated from 2010 onwards - currency is vital in relation to requests for free access on high quality research.
  • The article is locked behind a subscription paywall.
  • The article is not available in Open Access, or in ‘green open access’ (check the author’s ResearchGate profile, search for the article in Google and Google Scholar, look for the article in Academica.edu and ORCiD - sometimes authors post a ‘pre-print’ copy on their profiles). This is your homework - you just might find it available, free, somewhere. If you find the articles you like, please make a list and include it in your Curator Form for @WeSpeechies to list on the ‘Free Access’ page to go with your week curating.
  • You have indicated to us how you will discuss the article with followers, relative to these questions:
    • How does it inform practice?
    • Does it provide a contrasting view?
    • Does it provide useful clinical implications?
    • What is interesting about the article, and how will you draw attention to it while you are a curator?

Requesting Book Chapters in High Quality Texts

  • The book chapter is dated from 2010 onwards, and is highly relevant to your week.
  • The book chapter is not available directly from the author of the book, or of the chapter.
  • The book chapter is directly relevant to your week.
  • You have indicated to us how you will discuss the book chapter with followers, relative to these questions:
    • How does it inform practice?
    • Does it provide a contrasting view?
    • Does it provide useful clinical implications?
    • What is interesting about the chapter, and how will you draw attention to it while you are a curator?
