For over a decade, the open access (OA) movement has been gaining steam with the proliferation of OA article repositories, OA journals, and grantor requirements to make published research openly available. As a result, millions of items are now freely available, but are often housed and searchable in various venues. Several services have started collating this material into central interfaces to make them more discoverable. One of these is Unpaywall, which harvests open access content from over 50,000 publishers and repositories to provide centralized access to over 28 million free scholarly articles.
The USF Libraries are pleased to announce that EBSCO has integrated the Unpaywall application into the USF Libraries’ discovery interface, Find It! These texts are made available by selecting the “Full Text Open Access” link (highlighted below) that will appear in search results.
The USF Libraries are committed to providing access to the content you need for research and instruction. Read more about Online, Free Access to Research, and the open access movement and OA initiatives at USF at guides.lib.usf.edu/openaccess.
