Can I access figures from closed-access journals?

BenchSci analyzes content from both open- and closed-access journals

You can view the antibody that was used in each figure in our app, whether it's from an open- or closed-access journal. Figures from closed-access journals are marked with a key icon at the top of figure cards:

The icon for a closed access publication as seen on the figures results page is shown in red

However, since closed-access content is subscription-based, as part of our publisher agreements, figure legends or the figures themselves are hidden. To view the full figure with legend, you can follow the “View Figure and Legend” icon to view the full text, like this:

Our agreements with some publishers for closed-access content requires a subscription to that journal to see figure legend details

You will then be required to authenticate your institution's journal subscription via your institution’s portal (e.g. library website) or by entering your subscription information.
