Open Access Journals

Open access (OA) journals are a great way to find more resources on your research topic.

Open access scholarly literature is free of charge and often carries less restrictive copyright and licensing barriers than traditionally published works, for both the users and the authors. OA publishing is a newer form of scholarly publishing. Many OA journals comply with well-established peer-review processes and maintain high publishing standards. You can try searching for open access journals in for your topic by using the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

Open access journals and articles are part of a universe of Open Educational Resources. For more information, visit this guide.
