Open Access Week: OA Discovery Tools

To finish out the week, here are a few tips for finding open access materials:

1. Look for my bimonthly round-ups of open access articles referenced on this blog. (Scroll past the OA week posts first!)

2. Install the Google Scholar and/or Unpaywall buttons.
- These can help you to quickly identify if a freely available counterpart for a specific article is available online.

3. Search for OA items in BASEGoogle Scholar and ScienceOpen.
- Google's index is the biggest, but BASE and ScienceOpen offer more search features.

Happy searching!
