Research Using Open Access Academic Resources
Increasingly, the latest research is now being published in Open Access Repositories instead. Hosted by respected academic institutions (eg Universities), these offer the same high standard of peer-reviewed research, but are freely available to anyone with internet access.
SHERPA is a Search Engine through which you can browse research curated by UK Institutions, or you can sift through global quality-assessed academic respositories through OpenDOAR.
Other Open Access sources which are well worth exploring include OAIster, CORE and the Directory of Open Access Journals; and to learn more about the Open Access model, click here.
