Read Scientific Journals with Unpaywall
Posted by FreedomNet
Read Scientific Journals with Unpaywall: For someone who wants to be able to read scientific journals and research in their entirety, without reading someone else’s summary of said information, one of the worst hurdles to deal with is having to shell out money just to gain access to the PDF documents. And for someone looking to advance their understanding of things that make the world and its inhabitants tick, this can dissuade people from even attempting.
A free Google Chrome and Firefox extension called Unpaywall seeks to get past the paywall by linking you to sites and articles that have the information and research already freely available. Its use is simple, if there’s a gray lock at the top right corner of your screen that is on a scientific paper, it means that it couldn’t find a free paper. If there’s a green unlocked lock at the corner, it means a free version is available somewhere else. And if it’s a gold lock, then it means the paper is open source and already free to read. And there are no worries of breaking the law, Unpaywall works within copy write law unlike other sites like Sci-Hub that bill itself as a “pirate website.” While not every article will be freely available for viewing, the Unpaywall FAQ does cite 65 to 85 percent of the article it analyzed as being free to view somewhere.
