Scilit—Direct Access to Full-Text Articles

Scilit logo

We are pleased to announce that the Scilit search engine now provides direct access to full text versions of articles. Based on article-level licensing information, we already identify papers that are open access, and we have now taken this one step further by providing access to full-text versions of articles. To realise this, we have cooperated with Unpaywall and the CORE repository. So far, around 20 million of Scilit’s 110 million research articles have free versions available and we plan to increase this number over the coming months.

Other features of Scilit include filtering search results by preprint or open access content, and links to Google Scholar records of papers.

We expect this new feature to be a valuable addition to users of Scilit, and help to promote open access and open science. Scilit will remain free to access.

Publishers of research articles are invited to create a Scilit account to verify and upload their own data. They can also indicate whether their content is open access and provide links to full-text versions where possible.
