Open Article Gauge

A service to determine the license for journal articles

Researchers and funders often spend inordinate amounts of time trying to figure out what license terms apply to scholarly articles. The Open Article Gauge (OAG) is a service designed to search for, locate, and present the license information for an article – the terms under which it can be accessed and/or reused.

Simply cut and paste a DOI or Pubmed ID (or a list of up to 20 identifiers) in the box on the right, click “find”, and the OAG will display the available license information for you.
