Useful Open Access tools

Some helpful sources of information on Open Access.

Funders' compliance tool

SHERPA/FACT enables you to check if the journal you wish to publish in complies with your funder's open access requirements.

Directory of Open Access Journals

The Directory of Open Access Journals is a vital information source to help you find a suitable open access journal for your work.

Predatory open access publishers

There are unfortunately some rogue open access publishers out there with very low standards.  They are listed in Biall's List which is worth checking out if you have any doubts about a publisher's credentials.
