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 are listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals.

The IR@UF - UF Institutional Repository - is a place to save one's work and make it accessible to all; it is a portal to UF research and creativity.

Aardvark is an example of an Open Access portal for Asian Studies digital libraries and online article resources.

The Association for Asian Studies is also providing Open Access to certain electronic books like A Scholarly Review of Chinese Studies in North America.
