Open Access Engineering Journals

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

Engineering is applied science

Open access (OA) is a key part of making research shareable and reproducable. All journal articles published open access undergoe the same rigorous peer review process.

Our team made this list of Engineering Open Access journals with the aim to help you to decide where to publish your Engineering manuscript.
The list below includes all high-impact factor Engineering journals as well as new up and comming journals where it might also be more affordable to publish.Rather than displaying just the most relevant Engineering journals, we have made an in-depth list of all the open accesss Engineering journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Engineering 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 Engineering journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access aims to provide immediate and unrestricted access to research articles while along you to also share it freely
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
It refers to the strength of association between this journal being listed and the concept, from 0-100. For example, the Journal Of Research In Mechanical Engineering has a relevance of “0” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it has no 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?
If you're interested in seing more lists similar to this one, you can find all our lists on
How can I publish my paper on
That's exactly why we made these lists, so you can find a journal that will publish your paper. We at don't offer publishing services.
What is an APC?
In some cases, articles published in journals are made open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made usually made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services provided.
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)
