Test Cases

The purpose of this document is to provide insight into the test cases I utilize during release testing of Open Access Helper (for Safari). Sadly, there is always a chance that a test case, which was true today, will be false tomorrow. If you come across a problem with Open Access Helper, feel free to eMail me at and provide as much description as possible.

Due to time constraints during testing, I am not interested to grow this list indefinately, however if there is a publisher you know and trust and are able to contribute test cases, use the eMail address above to provide me with cases. I love to have cases for the three main cases I am testing for.


  • No Badge
    • No Open Access found
  • Orange
    • Open Access found at different location
    • Potentially I was just not able to follow through to finaly location
  • Green
    • Open Access at this location


There is no specific order to these sites, many of them were added in the order I added them during development and while there are thousands of publishers out there, I only test across the few below. Thus, if you have a really important case, send it my way.

Please note that I will try to limit "screen scraping" cases to the bare minimum, as these tend to break frequently and will be hard to maintain.
