Free GetFTR Browser Extension: works with all major discovery resources

One of the questions we are often asked is “Will GetFTR work with Google Scholar, PubMed and library discovery systems such as Primo?”

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

The extension provides GetFTR links in popular discovery tools which do not have a direct integration, improving discovery and streamlining access to scholarly content by removing unnecessary steps in the research journey. This is also 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).

The browser extension works with (more in development):

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

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.

It works with Chrome, Firefox and Edge (Safari in development) and can be installed for free from the following:
