“We can request this research through the Open Access Button. Teresa and I both requested 20 each. We’d love for you to help us request the rest. It’s easy and you can help make more research accessible to all whether you have time to make 1 or 50 requests!
1: Create an Open Access Button account. All that is needed is your email (to notify you when the request is fulfilled), but you can also provide your name, position, and/or affiliation (authors are more likely to help actual people).
2. Search Grab the DOI or title from this spreadsheet and paste it into the search box on the Open Access Button site.
3. Share a story and submit Tell the Button how getting access to the research will help you?—?this will be shared with the author and can be critical in convincing them to archive their research. You can either use the story below that Teresa and I have used, or create your own.
I’m really excited about your research related to Open Access. Unfortunately, it is not accessible to all. Librarians, open access advocates, and researchers could benefit from your article if you make it openly available. Please archive it, so we can all learn from your research!
4. Update the spreadsheet After you submit your request, copy the url and paste it in the “OAB Request Link” field on the spreadsheet.
That’s it! You’re a star!
The Open Access Button’s request system will email the author and request they archive the article to make it accessible to everyone. Thanks for helping make more research open!”
