Historically the research conducted on college campuses is shared through scholarly journals behind paywalls that make this important information unavailable to the general public. This is now beginning to change. Unpaywall is a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox that points you to legal, author-posted manuscripts that are hosted on university and government web servers. It is run by OurResearch, a nonprofit dedicated to making scholarship more accessible to everyone.
In our current age of misinformation, it is more important than ever that everyone has access to research. Unpaywall works great and encourage you to give it a try. See the Unpaywall Extension Research Guide from the University at Buffalo Libraries for more information.
