Faculty Fridays: Finding Open Access Journals

open sign

Open Access Week this year runs October 19–25 and promotes equitable access to knowledge for all. If you’ve ever thought about publishing your work in an Open Access (OA) journal to improve the discoverability and reach of your work but aren’t familiar with OA journals, check out this new tool from Mark Eaton, Librarian at Kingsborough Community College. The Open Journal Matcher lets you input the abstract of your article, and it will give you suggestions for OA journals from the Directory of Open Access Journals that publish on your topic. Give it a try–you may discover some new publications!
