This bot adds links to citation templates, providing alternative open access versions to references in Wikipedia articles. See also:

You can also simulate the bot on any page for additional references via its web interface:


  • The bot only edits in main space. It is compliant with the bot exclusion templates: to prevent OAbot from editing a particular page, you can use {{bots|deny=OAbot}} (for instance). There is no way to prevent OAbot from changing a particular template in a page.
  • The bot does not make changes to citations where at least one parameter is know to link to a freely available full text (such as |arxiv= or |pmc=).
