Find open access content
Once you are no longer a student at the University of Calgary, you lose access to many of our electronic resources. However, there are some great tools that help information-seekers easily and legally find openly-accessible research articles.
This free browser extension for Chrome or Firefox will help you find openly-accessible versions of articles. It searches for OA content from over 50,000 publishers and repositories. Get the extension.
Open Access Button
Visit the website and enter a URL, DOI, PMID, PMC ID, Title or Citation and the OA button will search for a freely accessible version. Or, install the Chrome browser extension to check for freely accessible content as you browse. If a free version of the item you want isn't immediately available, OA button will start a request for you, asking the author to make a copy freely and legally available.
