The Open Access Directory (OAD) is a compendium of simple factual lists about open access (OA) to science and scholarship, maintained by
the OA community at large. By bringing many OA-related lists together in
one place, OAD makes it easier for everyone to discover them, use them
for reference, and update them. The easier they are to maintain and
discover, the more effectively they can spread useful, accurate
information about OA. To see what we have, browse the table of contents
below, browse the table of categories, or use the search box in the left sidebar. To help the cause, just register and start editing. If you have any questions, see our help section or drop us a line.
OAD is a wiki and we count on our users to keep these lists
accurate, comprehensive, and up to date. Our goal is for the OA
community itself to maintain the lists with little intervention from the
editors or editorial board. We welcome your contributions to the lists, ideas for new lists, and comments to help us improve. Please contact us or use the discussion tabs on individual pages. The OAD is hosted by the School of Library and Information Science at Simmons College and supervised by an independent editorial board.
