How do I access the journals?
Access is free. Each open access journal published by us has its own website. We provide several options for easy access:
- link directly to a specific journal by creating a direct link in your repository
- link to our online reading platform for all AOSIS OpenJournals publications that houses our entire portfolio’s content
- upload your institution’s publications from our journals into your institutional repository
Do AOSIS OpenJournals journals have Impact Factors and are they citation tracked?
Yes; for any journal to have an Impact Factor, however, it must be tracked by Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge (formerly known as ISI) for three years. Although many AOSIS OpenJournals journals are tracked by Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge, others are still relatively new. Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge is currently considering additional journals published by AOSIS OpenJournals for tracking.
Two other citation tracking services, Scopus and Google Scholar, both track citations for most of AOSIS OpenJournals journals. The SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) is also a free alternative journal citation-metric based on citation information from Scopus.
