Find Your Article Online

Many articles are available for free online. One easy way to find them is to use a browser add on called Unpaywall. It works seamlessly by popping up in the right side of your browser with a green lock or a grey lock icon when you are looking at the article's DOI URL. After installing the extension, navigate to an article's origin and look for the green or grey lock icon. Green means there is a free version online. You can click the green lock icon and it will either download or navigate to that document online.
