Unpaywall Searches for article information in databases (such as Scopus, Pubmed, ScienceDirect and SpringerLink), search engines and journal publishers’ websites. Automatically displays a green Unpaywall icon in the right corner of the browser window if the article is available in an open access archive. Does not find articles that do not have a DOI. This applies to articles in the fields of the arts and the humanities, in particular.
Open Access button Look for an article’s information via a search engine, journal publisher website or database and click on the extension icon in the upper right-hand corner of the browser. This will open a new window displaying the article if it is available as open access material. By logging in to the service, you can send the author of an article a request to have the article saved in a publication archive, for example, if an open access version of the article is not yet available.
Google Scholar button When you notice the title of an interesting article in a text, select it and press the extension icon in the upper right-hand corner of the browser. The extension does not open the article directly, but displays a reference for it in a Google Scholar window. From there you can search for an open access version of the article. Clicking the ” icon provides you with a reference in your preferred citation style. You can also transfer the reference to reference management software, such as Refworks.
