SUNCAT contains the serials’ holdings of 67 UK research libraries, plus the CONSER database, the ISSN register and has recently added the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). The DOAJ is a comprehensive directory of scholarly open access journals, containing over 3700 titles. All journals included in the DOAJ are freely available and contain full text peer reviewed articles aimed primarily at researchers.
The addition of the DOAJ to the catalogue ensures that these free titles are made visible and accessible to SUNCAT searchers alongside any subscription electronic journals they have access to. SUNCAT searchers can find these titles interspersed in their search results or can choose to limit their search to these titles alone.
