Unpaywall: A New OA Discovery Tool (Wayne State University)

Wayne State University: Unpaywall: A New OA Discovery Tool. “Some of you may remember oaDOI, a tool that searches for an Open Access (OA) version of an article when provided with a digital object identifier (DOI). Impactstory, the team behind oaDOI, has just announced the upcoming release of a new tool based on the oaDOI API called Unpaywall and it looks to be very useful indeed.”

PC World on a Chrome Extension for Summarizing Long Articles

PC World has a writeup on a Chrome extension that’ll help summarize long articles. “When I first heard of TL;DR I thought it would be a handy tool, but something of a cheat, kind of like Microsoft’s Summarize bot…. Well, I was wrong. TL;DR is a little smarter than that and actually does a bit of parsing to extract key information for you. It’s not perfect, but it works well enough to help you get the gist of a long article.”
