Journal browser: check a journal's OA options
If you use the Journal Browser to search for a journal, you will get all the information about the open access agreements with that journal. The Journal Browser is located on the University Library's Open Science webpage.
The search function of the Journal Browser has been improved and often the first hit is your desired journal. Are you getting too many hits and can't find the right journal? Here are some tips on how to search faster:
- At the top, choose Search on words in title:
- Put the title in quotes. That way you only get titles with exactly those words in that order. You'll get the right result faster.
Example: "Nature communications"
You can find more tips if you click on the question mark next to the search bar.

More information about open access
The Library of Science regularly gives presentations about open access. The next one is scheduled for Monday, November 21; you can register on this webpage. On Tuesday, November 15, we will hold a 15-minute coffee lecture on the project "You share, we take care!". The Dutch copyright law offers you the opportunity to make even more publications open access. We will tell you how this works in the coffee lecture. You can register on this page.
