Directory of Open Access Journals

University of Puget Sound supports student success by contributing modest funding to the Directory of Open Access Journals, where we are listed as a DOAJ Funder.  This directory is supported via donation, and Puget Sound is proud to be contributing.

DOAJ locates and evaluates open access journals across the world to find those peer reviewed titles of scholarly value.  The collection currently consists of over 12,500 journals (75% of the titles searchable at the article level) from 128 countries. These numbers change daily because the directory is actively maintained by DOAJ. The goal of the directory is to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access academic journals.  1,386 of the titles have the DOAJ seal of approval, which means they follow a high level of openness and adhere to best practices and high publishing standards.  The articles are indexed in our Primo search (Collins+Summit+Articles scope) at
