Unpaywall – New OA Discovery

April 15, 2017

Unpaywall – New OA Discovery
https://blogs.wayne.edu/scholarscoop/2017/03/20/unpaywall/

Unpaywall operates on the same principle as oaDOI: it hooks onto an article’s DOI and searches a number of sources for an OA version of that article. The main difference here is that, while oaDOI requires you to enter a DOI into a search box, Unpaywall is a Google Chrome extension and performs that search in the background automatically when you visit the landing page for an article. An unobtrusive tab will pop up on the page, as can be seen in the example to the right, which will be green if an OA link is found and gray if not. Users can then click the tab to be taken to an OA version of the article (if one was found). Finding a DOI and entering into a search isn’t exactly an onerous task, but users are often unwilling to take those few extra steps; the streamlining that Unpaywall provides means that it’s far more likely for researchers to bring into their usual workflow. Unpaywall officially releases on April 4th, but Impactstory has made the extension available now and I have yet to run into any issues.

Black Book Online – Free Public Record Search Site
http://www.blackbookonline.info/

They have pre-scanned over a billion public records from thousands of public record data sources throughout all fifty states. They know where records can be found for any given name BEFORE you even run it! Once you do run a name, they give you a list of free public record lookups where there’s a possible* record matching the name. Just go to the free public record lookup to see the official public record information that exists! Since they haven’t pre-scanned ALL possible public records (and doing so would probably be impossible) they also have the best database on the web for free public record lookups — so your public record research can dig even deeper when it needs to! When you’re done with their name search, just use their database of over 36,000 free public record look ups to keep searching! This will be added to Finding People Subject Tracer™.
