Open Access Week: Journals & Scholarly Communication

As part of a growing trend toward increased access, many scholars are choosing to publish in an Open Access format. Services like the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) index “high quality, peer_reviewed Open Access research journals, periodicals and their articles’ metadata.” ( More than 2 million articles from 900 different journals are available in the areas of science, technology, medicine, social science, and humanities. To learn more about Open Access journals and repositories, visit Reed’s Open Access guide or check out the DOAJ FAQ site.

Open Access Week (October 24 – 30, 2016) is a global event to promote Open Access (OA) as the new default in scholarship and research.
