If you’re at one of the following institutions, you can try a full-featured Pubget that links to full-text PDFs available to these institutions:
- Harvard University
- Harvard Medical School
- University of Queensland
- Massachusetts General Hospital
From Pubget’s public site, you can get a feel for how it works, but it’ll only pull up open access PDFs.
To keep up on new developments, you can subscribe to the feed of the Pubget blog.
