Open Science Directory developed

Share this on social media:

EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) has joined forces with Hasselt University Library, Belgium, and the IODE (International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange) programme of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC) to develop a global Open Science Directory.

Available via the internet at no charge, the Open Science Directory provides developing regions a comprehensive search tool for all open-access and special-programme journal titles. Designed to enhance access to these collections by providing direct links to journals and articles in the EBSCO A-to-Z title database, the Open Science Directory offers immediate access to approximately 13,000 scientific journal titles, with an objective of 20,000 titles midway through development. Among the main open-access collections in the directory are DOAJ, BioMed Central, HighWire Press and PubMed Central.
