Launched in 2003 by the Lund University in Sweden, this resource is the community curated directory for thousands of open access journals, providing information and links to such periodicals from around the world. It covers all areas of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and humanities.

The interface provides a basic keyword journal and article search, with an advanced search that allows you to limit to either type, general subject heading, journal license, publisher, and language of the full text. It also allows searching by fields such as title, subject, ISSN, country, language, and year.
