GetFTR Browser Extension

One of the questions we are often asked is Can you let me know which content I’m able to access when using Google Scholar, PubMed and library discovery systems such as Primo?

The answer is yes – researchers can benefit from GetFTR by downloading the GetFTR browser extension.

The extension provides GetFTR links to full text in popular discovery tools, improving discovery and streamlining access to scholarly content by removing unnecessary steps in the research journey. This is good news for researchers because it ensures they are maximising their library subscriptions, even when starting their search in Google Scholar (or other major discovery resources).

NEW: The extension also signals Retraction and Errata information at the point of discovery which reassures researchers that they are reading the most accurate and up-to-date version of the article

The browser extension works with (more in development):

  • Google Scholar
  • Google
  • PubMed
  • Crossref Co-Access
  • Proquest Summons
  • Primo
  • Web of Science
  • EBSCO Discovery Service

  • Lens

It signals the book and journal content that researchers are entitled to read (either through their institutional subscriptions, or because the content is open access/freely available) right at the point of discovery.

The follow images show what Google Scholar and PubMed search results look like before and after installing the Browser Extension.
