Open Access (OA) Journals Added to

Posted on: February 4, 2014

The Scholars Portal Journals team has been actively working to identify and load Open Access (OA) content from commercial publishers.  As of today, 104 OA journals from the following publishers have been loaded:

  • BioOne
  • Cambridge
  • Elsevier
  • IEEE
  • Informahealth
  • Institute of Physics
  • Oxford University Press 
  • Synergies

The OA titles in Scholars Portal Journals are identified by a green "Open Access" label, on both the "browse" page for the journal and at the individual abstract level.

Additional OA journals from commercial publishers will be added over the next few months, including 300+ titles from DeGruyter, and several titles from Elsevier and Oxford.  The Scholars Portal team is also investigating ways to make OA content available from APA (American Psychological Association) and Springer.

In addition to fully open journals, Scholars Portal is working with commercial publishers to identify individual OA articles in "hybrid" journals - those which offer some OA articles, but require a subscription for others.  Expect to see more of these in the coming months, as additional open articles are identified and made available.

Full-text OA content is available to users without any authentication.
