List of Open Access Journals - wk6

Here is a listing of the top Open Access Journals that you can use for this week 6.

Important to note that some articles may be abstracts and not the full and complete text. A citation or article may lead outside the database to another source that requires purchase. Email me if you have problems navigating to find an article related to your topic.

Also you may have a broad range of articles at your disposal numbering in the thousands or very few that are not relevant to your topic. These databases are not as fluid as Leatherby Libraries and the databases like Academic Search Premier.

Make sure you choose a database closer to your topic. For week 6 both DOAJ -Directory of Open Access Journals & OAJSE - Open Access Search Engine, are your best bet to find articles across multiple subjects.
