I'm wondering if I can ask suggestion about where to find scientific papers concerning a specific topic on Stack Exchange site Academia or in another Stack Exchange section.

    Any particular area of science? – mdewey Jan 23 at 12:09
  • Hello @mdewey I'd like to find the original paper where there is the schedulability analysis for rate monotonic algorithm, when there are shared resources amongst the tasks. So it's a question about computer science. – Gennaro Arguzzi Jan 23 at 12:13
  • Generally the right tool to find something on the internet is a search engine. There really aren't any sites here that will act as a proxy search engine for you. – Robert Longson Jan 23 at 12:57
  • GennaroArguzzi, simply finding a paper claiming the best method or a comparison of methods often leads to a list of referenced papers; possibly including what you are looking for: ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/641267 and link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11241-018-9304-0 – Rob Jan 23 at 14:48

    Hello @Rob thank you very much for your reply. I tried to follow your suggestion, but I get everytime the same references (Liu and Layland 1973). By the way I'm continuing to search by looking at references. – Gennaro Arguzzi Jan 23 at 16:26

Many sites dedicated to specific sciences have so-called 'reference request' questions. Examples:

Knowing where to find a specific paper requires domain knowledge, so therefore Academia Stack Exchange is not a good choice.
