What better way to take action during Open Access Week than by starting a request for an article or dataset you need? The Open Access Button is here to help!
The Open Access Button has released a new Button for Open Access Week - a simpler, more effective way to get find and request research with the press of a button.
Find and request articles and data
The Open Data Button has now been combined with the Open Access Button. Now you can find and request both articles and data in one great service instead of making separate searches and requests.
Find and request research in your browser
Don't want to install the plugin? No problem! You can now use the Button in your browser. You simply submit a URL on the Browser Button page - the Button will search for an available copy of the article or data. If we are unable to get you immediate access, you can submit a request.
Give it a Try
You can install the new Chrome plugin or bookmarklet to any browser now or try out the Browser Button. A Firefox plugin will be released soon next week.
Give the Button a test run! Go to the Browser Button page and paste the URL of the article you need access to in the URL field. If you are looking for data, use the the URL of the corresponding article. If you don’t have an article you need right now, a great sample article to test the Button is Historical Overfishing and the Recent Collapse of Coastal Ecosystems. Submit this URL http://science.sciencemag.org/content/293/5530/629 on Browser Button page to test out the new Button.
We’re excited about all these improvements, but we’d love to know what you think! Let us know what you think on Twitter or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
