If you haven’t installed Unpaywall yet, try it

If you haven’t installed Unpaywall yet, try it. Unpaywall is a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox that does just one thing: links to a free copy of the research article you’re looking for somewhere on the web. It’s growing by more than 1,000 active users each week, through word of mouth; primarily, we think, because it makes the process of accessing the research literature simple, clean, and elegant. As a Canadian, it’s a little uncharacteristic of me to be so bold about something we’ve built, but seriously, try Unpaywall and see if you don’t agree that it presents an elegant solution to accessing the literature. — http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/impactofsocialsciences/2018/10/28/unpaywall-a-beautiful-way-to-help-everyone-get-the-research/
