Introduction

FreeFullPDF.com is a customized search form powered by Google and created by Brice Sagot of KnowMade, which searches for "free full text scientific articles in PDF format."[1] The documents accessible through this search engine are "available on open access sources." [1]

Use

The search results are listed in groups of 10, and data listed in the search results includes:

  • The document title - The search terms in the title are bolded, and the title is also a link to the original document.
  • File format - If the file is a PDF, then users can view the document through "Quick View" in Google Docs.
  • Short excerpts of text with bolded keywords in context.
  • The original URL of the document.
  • The document type (e.g. Article).

A side bar of Google Ads borders the right side of the search results page.
