Find Open Access

There are more than 25 million Open Access versions of otherwise “paywalled” scientific articles, however they are often not easy to find.

Open Access Helper for iOS & macOS is designed to help you get easy access to these documents, with a lot of help from some amazing APIs.

FIND OPEN ACCESS, LEGALLY AND WITH PRIVACY IN MIND

What’s the first thing that comes to mind, when you hear Open Access? Free! No paywalls! That’s right. But it isn’t quite that straight forward, because the path to that free access, is paved with a ton of complicated terminology and a great many different possible access locations.

Open Access Helper is designed to make finding the best Open Access location easy. Whenever my app comes across a DOI, it will query the APIs of unpaywall.org & core.ac.uk to see if an Open Access copy is available elsewhere.

The App is free and Open Source and I have no intention to change that.

When it comes to your privacy, you should not trust just any stranger on the internet! To help you decide for yourself the source code for my apps is available at Github. However, if you have questions, don’t be shy and simply reach out!

While I won’t charge you for using my apps, if you’d want to buy me a cup of tea, I am not going to object…
