Do not take existing URL or identifier for granted
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

OAbot should propose new links even on citations which already have an URL, or green OA identifiers (like PMC and arXiv). because the new URL/identifier can be an improvement. See an example of good edit made after removing the if already_oa_param restriction.

Factors we can consider with small effort:

  • for direct links to a PDF URL and certain identifiers, whether they're still functioning (CiteSeerX records and others can be taken down);
  • for functioning links, whether they're identical to the resolved DOI;
  • for identifiers, whether the existing identifier has higher priority than the proposed one (e.g., CiteSeerX identifier is less useful when there's already a PMC/arXiv identifier).
