?!?!  Never heard of it, and Google can't find it.  Are you sure it is even
an actually named species?

If you mean technical journals, my recommendation is don't subscribe if all
you are after is dinosaur science.  There isn't a "Journal of Dinosaur
Paleontology", and in a given issue of Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology
you might get anywhere from 0 to 5 articles with dinosaurs, all of which
will be technical.

There are a LOT of journals that have paleontology articles, many of which
are linked here:

However, technical journals are just that, technical.  They are also damned

In the best of all possible worlds, you can have access to a research
library (at a museum of university) that subscribes to many different paleo
journals.  In the next best worlds, you can contact authors or others to see
about gettting copies.

Yes, although Matt Carrano has had to move recently (to the Smithsonian)

You Hailu is currently not in China, but when he returns you could email him
for a copy.

While the URL for that issue is here:
there are no pdfs for that journal.  So you'll have to do it the old
fashioned way and either get to a library with the journal or find someone
who has a copy they can send you.  (I don't ; otherwise I would send you a
