Automatically search for open access options for paywalled outputs:

  • CORE Discovery – An in-browser extension from CORE (see above) – also recommends OA articles on a similar subject if the article is paywalled.
  • GetPDF – Coming soon from Open Access Button.
  • Kopernio – Provides a ‘get PDF’ button on your browser.
  • Open Access Button – Automatically detects paywalled articles and presents an open access alternative (for example a version in an institutional repository)
  • Unpaywall – An extension which searches Unpaywall’s database of millions of free scholarly articles each time you encounter a paywall.
