On the wider topic of navigating and discovering scientific content,
members of this list may be interested in a freely available tool that
is publisher-independent and provides, on-the-fly, a wealth of links,
to relevant and up-to-date other literature and data, from the
existing literature (irrespective of who published it).
The tool in question is the free scientific PDF reader Utopia
Documents (http://utopiadocs.com/download.php). On the
http://utopiadocs.com site you can see what its main features are.
Utopia Documents is a knowledge tool conceived and developed for
seasoned researchers and students alike.
Utopia Documents have recently also launched a bookmarklet that allows
readers to use Utopia to view PDF files currently being viewed in
their browsers. The Utopia bookmarklet is also freely available from
the Utopia Documents download site. The Utopia bookmarklet and the
Utopia Documents PDF reader are suitable for library-wide
installation. It is free. Assistance for large-scale installation,
incorporating local and proprietary resources (behind a firewall if so
desired) is available at a cost.

I am a bit unclear about this announcement. Will the supplemental
material be 'discoverable from search engines' and therefore open
access - even if attached to a paywalled paper?
I ask this because of the statement: "instantly viewable using the
Figshare widget, once readers select the supplemental tab on Taylor &
Francis Online" which seems to imply that you need to be logged in (or
recognised by) T&F's system. If that is the case the material is not

Authors who publish with Taylor & Francis journals will see their
supplemental material in a new online format from today, as tables,
datasets, filesets, videos and graphs become instantly viewable on
Taylor & Francis Online, easily discoverable from search engines and
quickly hosted on Figshare. Beginning with some 468 articles across
twelve journals on the Taylor & Francis Environment and Agriculture
list, this new service will see authors with journal articles
currently in production with Taylor & Francis use the Figshare
technology to display their supplemental data.
Not only will authors see their supplemental material in a much more
engaging format (instantly viewable using the Figshare widget, once
readers select the supplemental tab on Taylor & Francis Online) but
they will also be able to share this material more easily and track
usage through Figshare's metric functions. Every file uploaded to
Figshare will be easily citable (with a DataCite DOI allocated at the
point of publication) and will be stored under a Creative Commons
License. For every item on Figshare there will also be a link back to
its corresponding article on Taylor & Francis Online, so not only is
the supplemental content more discoverable, so is the article.
Figshare launched on Taylor & Francis Online on 30th January 2014 and
all new journal articles with supplemental material will automatically
be uploaded to Figshare from this date. See how it works:
