Asian Studies Journals in Open Access

Open Access (OA) is free, permanent, web-based access to scholarly publications. OA operates on the principle that research should be readily available immediately after publication and to anyone with an internet connection.  It is improving the way scholarly information is shared.  OA benefits authors because articles are made available much faster than those in traditional proprietary journals, thereby giving their research timely visibility, higher citation rates and greater overall impact.

Peer-reviewed e-journals in Asian Studies are listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals.
