"Here are the two services Impactstory has recently rolled out:
(1) Unpaywall is a plug-in for Firefox or Chrome which automatically adds a little lock icon to the side of the webpage when you’re in a database like JSTOR. If the article is not freely available for you through that database, a green “unlocked” icon appears; clicking on it should lead you to another site, such as a different database, or an institutional repository, where that article is freely, legally, available.
(2) oaDOI runs off of the same system of web-crawlers and such, finding legally freely available versions of an article in alternative places. The key difference is the interface: instead of starting from a journals database, you start with just the DOI: a unique string of letters and numbers that identifies a specific journal article."
