What is the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)?

The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ )is a searchable database of reviewed open access journals and articles published in these journals. You can search by title, ISSN, subject, and publisher in the “Quick Search” bar.


More advanced search filters are located in the sidebar under “Refine search results”, with filters available under dropdown menus.

The DOAJ seal is an indicator of a journal demonstrating best practices in open publishing and a high commitment to open access. Journals without the seal are still trustworthy and quality controlled.
