This post was written by Matthew Von Hendy, Chair of the Public Policy section of DSOC and an independent information professional at Green Heron Information Services.Is it possible for a researcher or lay person without much money to get access to high quality peer-reviewed scientific research and information? Increasingly, the answer is yes! In celebration of Open Access Week I have created a list of my favorite open access science resources. Many of these resources provide full-text or links to full-text if available but a few are only bibliographic in nature.Open access resources are also prone to frequent changes. One notable recent loss is the Scitopia federated search engine. Please feel free to add suggestions or make comments on sources you’ve used.
