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?
If a journal has a relevance of “100”, that means that the journal is fully related to the concept it is listed under. If, on the other hand, a journal has a relevance of “0”, that means that the journal doesn’t have any relation to the topic it is listed under. So Nutrition might have a low relevance when included in Open Computer Science Journals
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often works from this journal are referenced in other research papers. This data is obtained from OpenAlex. Even though the accuracy is debatable, it could help you determine how prestigious a journal is on the whole.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
If you are looking for an author or journal article, you can type it in the name, title, or DOI in the search box above to see more results. If you want to see a similar list to this one, take a look on
How can I publish my paper on
Our aim at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not publish any papers. What we do is that once a paper has been published, we index it in so that more people can find and access a journal article.
What is an APC?
Authors usually have to pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of peer review, publishing, and dissemination of published papers in a given journal.
What are the different Open Access types?
Depending on the license, a research paper might be categorised as a) Gold Open Access, b) Hybrid Open Access, c) Green Open Access, d) Bronze Open Access, e) Diamond Open Access, or f) Black Open Access
