Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) Launches the Canadian Open Access Journals List
CRKN is pleased to announce the launch of the new CRKN Open Access Journals List. This list includes over 400 open access journals hosted at CRKN member institutions and covers a variety of disciplines.
“The ultimate goal of the CRKN Open Access Journals List is to improve the discoverability of Canadian open access journals,” says Patricia Pang, Chair of CRKN’s Serials Management Sub-Committee. “It is challenging to find a list of Canadian open access output that spans across institution and discipline. We hope this list helps researchers discover and access reputable, peer-reviewed, open access scholarship through a trusted source.”
Formerly managed through Simon Fraser University Library’s CUFTS software, the CRKN Open Access Journals List will be distributed to link resolvers to allow more researchers to retrieve open access content through library catalogues. The list is designed to supplement other open access lists and databases, and provides a layer of review and reliability through regular additions and edits by librarians at local institutions.
Contribute to the CRKN Open Access Journals List! Use the online submission form to submit additional journals, or review the current list and submit any additions or changes to journals hosted at your institution through the online corrections form. Please submit changes by June 14, 2019, after which the Serials Management Sub-Committee will review the list prior to distribution to link resolvers.
