Can you send me paper X?
Short answer: No, we can not.
- In many cases, it would be a violation of copyright law to send you a copy. Many papers listed in dblp are published in closed access journals or proceedings and publishers ask authors to transfer the copyright to them. There is no "fair use" copying of copyrighted material under German law, and even if there was, copying and sending you commercially sold papers would probably be outside of "fair use".
- We – or our library – do not have access to all papers listed in dblp. Not. Even. Close.
- We do not have the resources to process requests for papers.
So please understand that we do not answer any "please send me ..." requests.
How to get a paper
- You should check your local library for a physical copy of the volume the paper appeared in.
- Many local libraries have a subscription to the digital libraries of the publishers – recent papers may be available there. We usually do provide a hyperlink to the paper's abstract page within publisher's digital library.
- An increasing number of papers are available as Open Access. If we know of an Open Access publisher serving a paper, then our website provides a hyperlink.
- If you are a member of ACM and/or the IEEE Computer Society you should consider to subscribe to their digital libraries - we can recommend both.
- You may look at the authors' home pages or ask the author(s) for a copy of their paper. From our experience, most authors will kindly help you out.
- You may order the paper from a commercial delivery service.
