Academic Databases: Free & Open Access databases/journals

Your guide to research databases


There are many free and Open access (OA) research databases. Some of which are full text and others are bibliographic. OA literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.

This guide will list a few OA databases. It will be updated periodically.

I would be happy to receive suggestions of free/OA research databases (full text or bibliographic) from you by email to add to this list.

Thank you.
