@invaderxan Thank you!
@irina No problem. Hope it's helpful!
@invaderxan It asked me for permission to access data for all my browsing activity before I could use it. 😒
@rushkeating The plugin needs to see the page you're looking at to know when you're on a journal website and which article you're looking at. It needs to "change" the page to give you a link to the free copy.
If you're uncomfortable with that, you can simply query the database directly. It's more time consuming but it gives the same result.
@invaderxan Awesome. Thank you!
Yeeeesss! Thank you!
@invaderxan oh this is neat! I wonder if my sciencey academic friends know about it 🤔 gonna pass it along, thanks for sharing
@KnivesOnly Anytime! I first heard about it from tumblr. Social media can be really helpful for sharing these things!
@invaderxan totally agreed! It's one of my favourite things
@invaderxan I've been testing Kopernio, too. Both very useful for finding OA versions!
@delibrarian Oh cool, thank you, I hadn't heard of this one!
@invaderxan thank you
Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
