What are the Types of Open Access Research Journal

Today I will be discussing about the various types of Open Access (OA) journal articles. This has become imperative given the growing demand and support it has garnered over the fifteen years of its emergence. Event in recent years have shown an increasing number of individual authors, reviewers, funding agencies (both governments, private, and non-governmental), institutions, universities, libraries, publishers etc, embracing Open Access research article publication. The advent of several technological tools such Unpaywall, DOAJ, the infamous Sci-hub, various academic social networks like ResearchGate, Academia.edu etc have further increased the popularity of OA and brought about deeper scrutiny of the traditional toll access publication process. To worsen matters, the increasing cost of toll access journal subscriptions, further propelled the adoption of OA as a viable alternative by several stakeholders. Furthermore, research has shown that, on the average, Open Access articles receive about 18% more citations than toll access articles, indicating an increased use of OA articles. 1

How to Optimize the Use of Mendeley Desktop
Introduction | Today I will be discussing another very important tweak in Mendeley- how to tweak and optimize the use of Mendeley. This will help to: Optimize Storage Space,Ensure Fast Synchronization, andReduce Internet Bandwidth/Data Usage When Using Mendeley. Mendeley is one of the widely used Reference Management Softwares by researchers, journalists, graduate, and undergraduate students. Occasionally, we encounter some issues (not a bug in the software per se) when using Mendeley. Three of the commonly encountered issues are: 1. The synchronization of Mendeley contents takes too long to complete- Poorly Optimized Mendeley Desktop You may have noticed that your Mendeley Desktop application takes a long time to completely synchronize contents between your Mendeley web account and the Desktop application. This process of synchronization is very important and serves to ensure the efficient and effective use of Mendeley. In other words, it helps to optimize the functionality of your Mendeley Desktop application. How is this so? Whenever you add references to your Mendeley account, you need to synchronize it. This can be done by either clicking on the…

How to Use Unpaywall
Introduction | Today I will walk us through how to use Unpaywall to access millions of Open Access copies of Paywalled Journal articles easily. Researching hers are often faced with the problem of how to search for articles and journals they wish to use in their works, more so now they have a huge number of paywall restricted and Open Access journal articles to search and select from. Libraries in developing countries are constrained by lack of funds, so subscriptions to scientific journals is almost non-existent and even where available, are not regular and also poorly maintained. Researchers in these countries are thus left with no other choice but to source alternatives. The number of Open Access journal articles is fast increasing as more publishers embrace the concept of Open Access to scientific research articles. It would be a Herculean task for researchers to have to surf through thousands of publisher journals and millions of articles. While paywall restricted journal articles can be accessed through the infamous Sci-hub site (often dubbed as 'Illegal'), Unpaywall boasts…

What are Open Access Journal Articles
Introduction | Today I will be discussing Open Access (OA) Journals. OA Journals have been around for over 15 years. In the past, scientific publishers considered OA as a threat, but this is fast changing as the majority are now embracing the concept of OA, albeit most of the publishers still have their journal contents restricted behind a paywall, requiring subscription access fees, with numerous copyright laws associated with them. Scientific Publishers have had to engage in a lot of legal battles over copyright infringements, winning some and losing some. What are open access journal articles In recent years, there have been several lawsuits running into millions of dollars, restrictions placed by courts on the illegal access and use of paywall restricted journal articles, arguments for and against paywall restrictions of journals. This debate is further fueled by the widespread use of the internet and social media. In the past, information was difficult to come by; most people were limited by the limited available information in their institutional libraries, mostly physical. However, the narrative has changed…

How to Use Ottobib to Generate References of Books Cited

Today I will be explaining how to get the reference or bibliography of books cited in our articles, all well formatted according to a Citation Style Language (CSL) of our choice. Often times, we use books as a reference source when wrting our articles, and as such the need to cite such sources arise.  This may be a daunting task for some of us. Don't worry, EduTechTainMent is here to show an easy way out. 

Ottobib 1 is a free online resource we can use to make a bibliography of books cited using just the International Standard Book Number (ISBN). The ISBN is a unique, standardized number assigned to various editions, versions and variations of a book. This means that, a particular book has a unique numeric digits assigned to each of its different editions and variations or versions, whether hardcovers, electronic book versions, or paper-back versions, with the exception of reprints.

Is Sci-Hub Down? How to Find and Use Other Sci-hub Mirror Sites

Today I will be discussing how to find out the functional Sci-hub website to use, when the particular site you visit is down. Sci-hub provides “free” access to millions of research papers in the world. Sometimes Sci-hub users are faced with the challenges of not knowing an alternative Sci-hub mirror site to use, especially when the only one they know is currently down. The huge frustration is better imagined than experienced, especially when you have a deadline to meet in submitting that manuscript or research paper. A mirror site is an exact replica of a website, containing exactly the same content as the primary/parent website. The mirror site runs on a different server, has a different IP address, and a different domain name (URL).
