Graduating soon? Still need access to research?
Try the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) at www.doaj.org
The DOAJ provides open access to thousands of scholarly research articles.
What is Open Access?
“Open Access is free, unrestricted access on the Internet to the same type of high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship that is available by subscription.” – Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook by Alma Swan & Leslie Chan
Why does Open Access matter?
• Students’ research does not end when they graduate.
• Students deserve access to scholarly materials regardless of what their educational institution may be able to subscribe to.
• Scholarly research is often paid for with public funds and should therefore be available to everyone.
