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. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Academic and Scholar Search Engines and Sources.
