The Directory of Open Access Journals is a directory of quality-assured electronic journals that are freely accessible on the internet.
As a scientist, do you want your research results to be known as widely as possible? Then you should make your work available to a maximum readership by publishing it online under Open Access conditions.
In contrast to Closed Access, which is subject to a fee, Open Access offers free access to scientific information: Any interested person worldwide can thus read, download, save, link and print your work. This guarantees unrestricted and equal participation of all people in scientific progress. For you as a scientific author, Open Access offers better visibility as well as increased citation frequency - both important goals that we are happy to promote.
Sharing knowledge, connecting people - that's what SLUB is all about! In order to promote the boundless exchange of knowledge, we have developed the strategy paper "SLUB 2025". This sets out our goals, our workflow and our measures around shared knowledge. The document thus provides orientation for all people who work at SLUB, collaborate with us or support us.
We offer access to the Open Access Network
SLUB supports unrestricted access to scientific publications and therefore works with open directories and library databases:
