Like traditional journals, some  Open Access journals can be peer-reviewed or not.

  • About 98% of the OA journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) are peer-reviewed, with over 50% being double-blind peer-reviewed. Check the journal's website or their listing in DOAJ if you are unsure of a journal's practices.
  • For Green OA, ResearchDirect requires a deposit of the accepted manuscript.
  • This is the author's version of the paper after revisions but before the publisher's final copyediting and typesetting.
  • Review this FAQ about evaluating potential journals to publish in to determine if it is the best outlet for your work, whether it is open access or not
