Open Access button

The button is a bookmarklet that you can download for free and add to the toolbar of your web browser. When you are next confronted with a publisher paywall page requesting payment for viewing a journal article, you simply click on the Open Access Button bookmark. The button does two things: firstly it records details of the article you wanted to access, your reason for wanting to access it, your location – and secondly, it  helps you to find a free, author-deposited version of the article using Google Scholar.

 Paywall Map

The  maps shows thousands of paywalls which prevent free access to research.
