An glternative, a portmanteau of legal, Google, and alternative, is an open access community-written list of web searches that, in combination, cover all information from a book chapter, paywalled article, other text or video/audio content.

As a contributor, you’ll need to only submit your search phrases—we’ll have them converted into clickable Google links automatically. Simply open an glternative request and reply to it with your list of suggested searches. It’s that easy!
