With the goal of improving the discoverability of peer-reviewed Canadian open access journals, CRKN maintains a list of open access journals hosted at CRKN member institutions. Formerly managed through Simon Fraser University’s CUFTS software, this list is distributed to link resolvers to allow more researchers to see and access this content through library catalogues.
While there are a number of other tools and databases that list open access journals, the CRKN Open Access Journals List supplements those databases by providing a platform exclusive to member institutions with a reduced administrative burden to join.
In order to be eligible for this list, a journal must be:
1. Open access
4. Supported by a CRKN member institution
Help keep the CRKN Open Access Journals List up to date by reviewing the current list and submitting additions and changes for journals hosted at your institution. Members may contact Émilie Lavallée-Funston, Member Services and Licensing Officer for additional information or to submit changes in an alternative format. Please use the Template file below to submit multiple titles at once; please note that some fields are required.
The CRKN Open Access Journals List is maintained by the Serials Management Sub-Committee, under guidance from the Content Strategy Committee.
This table is sorted by Institution first, then by Title.
