PoP 8 new features (4): Search for free full text version
On the 1st of November 2021, nearly exactly 15 years after first launching Publish or Perish, we released version 8 of the software. After two months of "soft launch", we are now ready to publicise its new features. To do so, I will post about a new feature every Thursday. If you want a complete overview have a look at this blogpost: Publish or Perish version 8.
A key new feature in Publish or Perish 8 is the ability to check for free full-text availability of any of the results. There are two ways to do this, both of which are available through the popup menu in the results list (right-click on a result for the menu) as well as through the new Paper details pane for the selected paper, as shown in the screen shot below.
- Open in full-text if available in the data source that you searched in, greyed out if no full text can be found in the data source in question.
- Find full-text with Unpaywall, searches the Unpaywall database for a full-text option.
Some notes and limitations:
- This feature is not available in Google Scholar Profile searches, but is available in all other data sources, including plain Google Scholar.
- Although in most cases the two options provide the same version of the paper, this is not always the case. You might wish to try both so as to find the “best” version.
- The free full-text version will often be a pre-publication version. If you prefer the officially formatted journal version and your library has access to the journal in question, you might wish to login to your university library and use “open article in browser” instead.
