Open Access and Scholarly Communications @ Duke: Supporting OA

How You can Support Open Access

Explore Open Access options provided by traditional as well as OA publishers!

Search for journals related to your subject in the Directory of Open Access Journals (link below). 

More and more traditional publishers such as Elsevier, Springer, Wiley and society journals are experimenting with Open Access journals.  Visit publisher Websites to see which OA options they offer BEFORE selecting a more traditional journal title that does not provide easy access to its content. 

Unfortunately while Open Access is wonderful, predatory OA journals have appeared as well.  These are journals which are more interested in collecting authors' OA fees than in publishing and reviewing high quality content.  Check out Beall's List below if you are uncertain of a journal or publisher.
