'How Unpaywall Is Transforming Open Science' by Holly Else

In an article in Nature, Holly Else notes that “firms that run established scientific search engines are starting to take advantage of Unpaywall.” Additionally, Unpaywall is “integrated into many university-library discovery systems, so that users can easily find freely available versions of research papers in institutional repositories.”

She continues, “Large citation databases such as Scopus and Web of Science list the majority of all research articles. By integrating their records with Unpaywall data, researchers can systematically measure the proportion of the literature that is freely available—a feat that wasn’t previously possible.”

For more information, read the article.
