Open Access Computer Science Journals

A list of Open Access Computer Science journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Computer Science is theoretical study of the formal foundation enabling the automated processing or computation of information, for example on a computer or over a data transmission network

A journal article is 'open access' when there are no financial, legal or technical barriers to accessing it - that is to say when anyone can read, download, distribute, print, and search it.

We hope this list of Computer Science OA journals will be helpful for you in deciding where to publish your Computer Science manuscript.
We made this list which includes all the high-impact factor Computer Science journals that might be relevant to your field of study.Rather than just the top hits Computer Science journals, we have made an exhaustive list of open accesss Computer Science journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Computer Science venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Computer Science journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access refers to free access to information and unrestricted use of electronic resources for everyone. Any kind of digital content can be open access, from texts and data to software, audio, and video.
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
It refers to the level of association between a journal being listed and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, the Journal Of Physics Through Computation has a relevance of “100” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it has relevance to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often articles from a journal have been referenced in other works. We get this data from OpenAlex.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists, look on
How can I publish my paper on
We do not offer publishing services. If you'd like to get your paper published, I would suggest you find a journal that suits your needs.
What is an APC?
An APC is the article processing charge that an author of a given research paper has to pay in order to get it published in a journal. APCs are most commonly used by open access journals or by journals who offer open access publishing.
What are the different Open Access types?
Although there are Gold, Green, Hybrid, Bronze, Diamond, and Black Open Access licenses, here are the most common ones: Full Gold Open Access: article is freely and permanently accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Hybrid Open Access: refers to a publishing model in which subscription-based journals allow authors to make individual articles gold open access immediately on payment of an article publication charge. Green Open Access: refers to the possibility to make subscription-based journal articles open access by uploading the peer-reviewed and accepted author manuscript to an institutional repository (such as DiVA)
