Free and/or OA Journals in Librarianship - George Porter

Yesterday, George Porter, on a number of discussion groups, wrote about free and open access journals dedicated to the profession. Additional titles in the list were e-mailed to me directly.

Today's launch of Biomedical Digital Libraries [see note on Open Access News, hosted by BioMed Central, got me to thinking about the tools of the librarian trade. Here are the complete fulltext journals, either free or Open Access, which come to my mind. I'm sure I'll miss a few, which is why I'm casting a pretty wide net.

Sadly, of the several titles listed with definitive end dates, only one results from a title change. JEP has been missing in action for more than 2 years pending a relocation to Columbia University Press. - George Porter

George thanked Gary Price and Jenny Reiswig for additional contributions. Joanne Yeomans replied on a number of the discussion groups that the DOAJ lists 31 (now 32) titles in Library and Information Science.
