Another resource for free articles

Everyone loves getting articles for free! Let us introduce a unique tool to find free articles

Unpaywall – – is a database of more than 24 million legally free articles! Unpaywall harvests these articles from open access repositories (like PubMed Central) and from over 50000 journals.

However it is not a database that can be searched in itself. It has to be integrated in any other collection – example – a library’s collection or into a collection like PubMed

This is best used when you install the Chrome Browser Extension available at Once you install this, then when you browse any database that has integrated Unpaywall, on the right side of your screen you will see a symbol of a lock. If it is green, the article is free. If it is white, the article is not free

Go ahead – install the Chrome extension and try. You never know. Articles that you think are not free may actually be free!

And librarians and library committee members – please do see about integrating Unpaywall into your collections! You may do your users a lot of good!
