Abstract

The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) is a community-curated online directory that indexes and makes open access, peer-reviewed journals available to the public. The Directory of Open Access Journals contains a wide range of journals in the fields of science, agriculture, social science, and other multidisciplinary areas. The study focuses on how librarians may utilize the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) to redistribute high-quality open-access journals to their patrons by integrating and linking these journals to Web-portals that cater to their academic and research needs.

Keywords: Open access resources, Open educational resources, Directory of open access journals, Information dissemination, Open access regime, Academic libraries, etc.
