Open Access (OA) stands for unrestricted access and unrestricted reuse.Here’s why that matters:
Most publishers own the rights to the articles in their journals. Anyone who wants to read the articles must pay to access them. Anyone who wants to use the articles in any way must obtain permission from the publisher and is often required to pay an additional fee.
All the journals included do not charge for their content. They also undergo a peer-review or quality control process. These journals are academic in nature, and can be distributed to your class without violating copyright. These journals cover all topics and are from a variety of countries.
Although limited in scope, these open journals are supported by large publishing agency, Wiley. The 5 titles included are: "Brain and Behavior", "Ecology and Evolution", "MicrobiologyOpen", "ChemistryOpen", and "Food and Energy Security." All titles are peer-reviewed.
This service is an extension of the Internet Archive. It's intended purpose is to catalog every book in the world; however, it also links to the full-text of those that are in the public domain. Again, great primary source materials.
