Open Access journals comprise a rapidly growing portion of the scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles published around the globe.
The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) is the best way to find Open Access journals. You can search by keyword, subject, language, country, processing charges*, and copyright licensing e.g. CC-BY.
We can help you develop an Open Access journal to showcase your research!
*Publishing is not free: there are costs for journal hosting, copy-editing, production, etc. Some Open Access journals charge article processing fees to cover these costs, while others operate on different business models which do not charge authors to publish.
Repositories are online archives which collect, preserve and disseminate research outputs such as articles, working papers, theses and dissertations in digital format. Repository contents are usually openly accessible for anyone around the globe.
Repositories can focus on collecting work around a specific scholarly discipline, such as arXiv, a popular physics repository.
Many institutions, including Brock University, provide institutional repositories to showcase the work of their scholars.
