Rendez-vous de l'info scientifique

Facilitating your article searches with the Unpaywall plugin

Description: Despite the numerous subscriptions offered by the Library, some articles remain inaccessible unless you pay to access them. Some tools such as unpaywall allow to quickly locate an accessible version of the article if it is present elsewhere on the web (for instance on an institutional publication repository), and to immediately access the pdf in one click.
