I’m a huge supporter of open access information, and as such I got really excited when I found this site. Today I’m sharing with you the Directory of Open Access Journals.
What you’ll find is a directory of open access, peer-reviewed journals. What that means is that they are journals that anyone can access without hitting a paywall (most academic or scholarly journals you have to pay to access).
When you arrive at the site, you’ll have the option to search the directory for both journals and articles by using the search field. This allows you to keyword search for the topic you are looking for.
You can also click Browse Subjects at the top of the page, to see tree style listing of all the subjects. When you click onto one of the main headings, for example, click agriculture, you’ll see that it opens up another level of subject headings you can browse. All of the subject headings with an arrow on the folder can be expanded to show narrower subject headings and refine your search further.
This is an amazing resource! Go check it out for yourself today!
