Open access journals

Open access literature is defined as "digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions."  Advocates of open access believe that the results of research - especially funded by taxpayers - should be made freely available to the public.  Open access journals are predominantly scholarly journals (the research has gone through the peer-review process).

Open access journals in mathematics may be found through:

  • Project Euclid
  • The Public Library of Science
  • BioMed Central
  • PubMed Central
  • Directory of Open Access Journals
  • Open J-Gate

Finding journals & journal articles in mathematics

Journal Titles
(also accessed from the tab on the library home page) helps you to: 

  • identify which journal titles are available at UR
  • identify which titles are in print or can be accessed as e-journals
  • access the e-journals through UR subscription links *
  • connect to the catalog to find "holdings" information for print titles (which volumes/years that UR owns)
  • find UR journals by subject 

* Most UR subscriptions must be accessed through the Journal Locator links and not by going directly to the journal's website.  Most subscriptions are also verified by IP identification - you must access UR e-journals from the campus network or through the proxy server.

Some publishers "embargo" their most recent issues so that you may only be able to electronically access articles published 1-2 years earlier.
