"The simple fact is that this is how many academic journals work.

You might consider using your University library, many have both electronic and hardcopy journal subscriptions, and most decent ones will have systems like Lexis Nexis available. This sort of thing is a huge reason for Uni libraries in the modern age."

"This may be less efficient than what you'd prefer, but if you find a paper that you don't have access to, first:
