Open Access Week: Finding open access journals


There are increasing amounts of completely open access journals available for everyone to access and read and one of the main places you can find out about open access journals is the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ):

It is an online directory that lists ” high quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals” and provides information and links on their site. There are currently over 10000 journals listed and they can be searched for or you can browse subjects to see what is available.

You can also find journals that are completely open access by looking on publisher websites as many publishers are now producing and promoting open access titles. A couple of examples are:

Elsevier Open Access Journals

Springer Open Access Journals

Taylor and Francis Open Access Journals

Information about searching for open access journal articles will be be shared in a post later in the week.

This post has been put up as part of International Open Access Week. To see the programme of drop-ins and workshops running this week please follow this link.
