Access to IET conference papers for author

Posted by Andy Millar on Jun 28, 2019 1:36 pm

Hi,

There's an IET conference paper I wrote a few years ago that I'd like to get an electronic copy of - because I've changed company since then I don't have access to my original. Is it possible for authors to get copies of their own papers without paying for them?

And yes, I am cross with myself for not keeping a backup!!!!

Thanks,

Andy

Here it is bellow as follows:

Introducing a New Track Circuit on British Infrastructure 

I would appreciate it if someone could explain what Knowledge Credit means? Apparently, I have 10 credits, and the doc cost 1 credit. Does it mean I can view it for free by using up 1 of my 10 credits? Otherwise it costs £10 to download. I'm sure Andy is entitled to his own paper for free.

Hi Mehmood,
Please see the FAQs page on Knowledge Credits which should answer your question. We've got Andy sorted now 👍

Hi Mehmood,

That's actually a different one - which I'd completely forgotten I'd done! Thanks for that, I'll add it to my CV 😊

I wonder what I said? I wonder how many more papers I've presented that I've forgotten?? I do remember the one I did last year.

Cheers,

Andy
