Finding Open Access Journals

Finding a publisher that supports self-posting to repositories and open access to research can be tricky: reading those publisher agreements are boring. So SHERPA has made it easy by rate publishers by the color of their openness: from green (archive the post-print online) to white (no ability to post elsewhere).

Check SHERPA Romeo for a full publisher directory with a database of Publisher Terms/Conditions.
