Strengthen Exposure to Open Access Journals

Index to Legal Periodicals & Books includes rigorous curation of open access (OA) journals, which has resulted in a growing collection of 300 global OA journals. Once validated and certified for inclusion, these OA journals are treated with high-quality subject indexing and sophisticated, precise/accurate full-text linking.  

NOTE: EBSCOhost databases and EBSCO Discovery Service generate a lot more referrals for DOAJ than any other online platform.

Comprehensive Non-Journal Content

In addition to legal journals, Index to Legal Periodicals & Books indexes law reviews, yearbooks, institutes, statutes, bar association publications and university publications.
