We analyze both open- and closed-access publications
All of our open-access content includes articles published on PubMed Central within the last 15 years, including many papers that are subject to the National Institute of Health (NIH) 2008 Open Access Policy, ensuring that all publications describing research funded by the NIH are made publicly available within 12 months of publication.
Our closed-access content includes articles from our publishing partners, a topic covered in more detail in our article about how comprehensive our database is.
What if I don't have a subscription to those journals?
Some scientific journals are closed-access, meaning you or your institution needs to pay for a subscription to access articles from that journal.
BenchSci analyzes content from both open- and closed-access journals, and you can view the reagent that was used in each figure, whether it's from an open- or closed-access journal. More information about this can be found here: Can I access figures from closed-access journals?
