This is a reminder about two browser extensions we have available for download, LibKey Nomad and Unpaywall. Both help to streamline the research process and save you time by automatically providing links to the full-text content of articles where they are available, wherever you choose to search on the Internet.
LibKey Nomad consults the Library’s holdings data (and open access alternatives) to determine the best place to source the article from. Articles can be accessed directly from journal publishers, or via platforms such as Web of Science or PubMed, and even Wikipedia. An article that is available for download is indicated by the LJMU ‘Download PDF’ icon, as shown below:
Unpaywall searches the Internet to determine if there is a freely available open access version of the article you require. Click on the green and white padlock icon, and Unpaywall immediately links you to papers that authors have legally uploaded to free research repositories. 20 million free, legal full-text PDFs have now been indexed by Unpaywall.
Please see our Library FAQ for more information on how to download and use the two extensions:
