Finding Articles in DOAJ

Have you ever tried to find a journal article in PDF format, especially in an interdisciplinary field, and come to a dead end? More and more scholarly journals are published electronically. If they are “open access” journals, freely available on the Web, they may be part of the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) database. DOAJ provides a user-friendly platform for searching and locating full-text articles in over 2000 scholarly and scientific journals. Hosted and maintained by the Lund University (Sweden) Libraries with the aim of increasing visibility and ease of use of quality open access research journals, DOAJ is freely accessible to anyone at www.doaj.org. The collection is particularly strong in American, European and international journals with the cross-disciplinary content (economic, political, environmental, and cultural) that is increasingly critical to legal research. Searching the “Journal Finder” feature of the Hofstra web site "Libraries" page will also lead you to journal titles included in DOAJ.
