Open Access Resources



The Directory of Open Access Books is a discovery service for peer reviewed books published under an open access licence. DOAB provides a searchable index to the information about these books, with links to the full texts of the publications at the publisher's website or repository.

The Directory of Open Access Journals lists free, full text, quality controlled scientific and scholarly journals, covering all subjects and languages.

The Directory of Open Access Resources aims to provide a comprehensive and authoritative list of academic open access repositories for end-users who wish to find particular archives or who wish to break down repositories by locale, content or other measures. Users can search for repositories by the following regions: Africa, Asia, Australasia, Caribbean, Central America, Europe, North America, and South America.

OAIster is a union catalog of digital resources. It includes the Institutional Repositories of many universities. Where an Institutional Repository is included in OAIster, it is not listed elsewhere in this directory, so we recommend starting your search with OAIster.

The aim of the Registry of Open Access Repositories is to promote the development of open access by providing timely information about the growth and status of repositories throughout the world. Open access to research maximises research access and thereby also research impact, making research more productive and effective.
