Open Access research: how to find it

We've posted a few times on the Open Access debate and the merits of making your research more easily accessible to those without membership of organisations, such as university libraries, with subscriptions to paid journals.  So we thought it would be useful to point out a few key places to find research that you can access without a paywall.

CORE (COnnecting REpositories) is a service which combines the content of existing digital repositories (e.g. university research archives such as RaY).  We have found this very useful in obtaining research from colleagues across the country and beyond.

OAIster is another service which harvests records of open access items from across the world.

DOAJ is the Directory of Open Access Journals, providing a search tool to access open access, peer-reviewed journals.

Why not have a look and see what is available?
