EBSCO A-to-Z Used for Open Science Directory

EBSCO Information Services (www.ebsco.com) recently joined forces with Hasselt University Library, Belgium, and the IODE (International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange) program of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC) to develop a global Open Science Directory, which utilizes EBSCO’s A-to-Z locator product. Available free on the internet (www.opensciencedirectory.net), the directory provides developing regions a comprehensive search tool for all open access and special program journal titles.

Designed to enhance access to these collections by providing direct links to journals and articles in the EBSCO A-to-Z title database, the Open Science Directory offers immediate access to approximately 13,000 scientific journal titles, with an objective of 20,000 titles midway through development. Among the main open access collections in the Open Science Directory are DOAJ, BioMed Central, HighWire Press, and PubMed Central, and special programs HINARI, AGORA, and OARE. INASP-PERI and eJDS will be added in the near future.

The EBSCO A-to-Z locator tool is used by libraries to list all of their e-resources, including ejournals, full-text title databases, publisher packages, and ebooks. The A-to-Z locator tool listing also contains print titles as well as other local resources. EBSCO’s A-to-Z knowledgebase (master title database) represents all major database vendors and publishers, with information on more than 216,000 unique titles from nearly 2,000 databases and ejournal packages.
