This Browser Extension Will Help You Read Paywalled Science Papers for Free

Summary:

"A free new Chrome and Firefox extension called Unpaywall seeks to get you past that paywall and show you the data you want whenever it’s available someplace else. It is far from comprehensive, but on top of OpenAccess, preprints and a few other options, science is beginning to become something that doesn’t require a subscription.

The extension is simple—you click a button to install it, and when you access a paper a little lock shows up on the righthand side of the screen. If it’s grey, Unpaywall couldn’t find a free paper."
