Accessibility of a great number of online chemistry journals is subjected to a mixed paying policy: the publisher may grant free access to a selected set of volumes (issues) while the admission to the rest of the database may be open just to subscribers or paying visitors. Quite often the information on the availability status is hidden deeply in the publisher's website pages and this complicates finding the free part of content.

The Directory makes this task easier by listing the fully and partly free journals that comply with the following criteria:

  • publisher's grading of a journal as peer-reviewed;

  • one-year, at least, free full-text content, or extensive free supplements to printed versions of papers;

  • chemistry or chemistry-related subject coverage;

  • English language of articles (journals in Russian are also listed on a separate page).

In some cases, where HTML format cannot be created, PDF documents may be available to improve accessibility to that journal.

Bioline does not hold or require exclusive agreements with participating journals. All participants provide their material on an open-access basis and are encouraged to make their material available through other websites, indexing services and other web-resources. Bioline will continue to work with new and existing journal participants to improve visibility and readership through the various web resources that are available.

SciELO - Scientific Electronic Library Online is a model for cooperative electronic publishing of scientific journals on the Internet. Especially conceived to meet the scientific communication needs of developing countries, particularly Latin America and the Caribbean countries, it provides an efficient way to assure universal visibility and accessibility to their scientific literature, contributing to overcome the phenomena known as 'lost science'. In addition, the SciELO model comprises integrated procedures for the measurement of usage and impact of scientific journals.Provides free access to scientific journal articles from Brazil, Chile, Cuba, and Spain

SciELO Model is product of a partnership among FAPESP (http://www.fapesp.br)– the State of São Paulo Science Foundation, BIREME (http://www.bireme.br) - the Latin America and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information, as well as national and international institutions related to scientific communication and editors. A pilot project, involving 10 Brazilian journals from different subject areas, was successfully carried out from March 1997 to May 1998, aimed at the development and evaluation of an adequate methodology for electronic publishing on the Internet. From June 1998, the project begins to operate regularly, incorporating progressively new journal titles and expanding its operation to other countries. Since 2002, the Project is also supported by CNPq (http://www.cnpq.br) - Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico.

DLA, a department in the University Libraries at Virginia Tech, evolved from the Scholarly Communications Project (SCP) begun in 1989. Our focus is to work with the university community to host born-digital works, beginning in 1991 with faculty-edited electronic journals. In 1995 we began envisioning ETDs completed by VT graduate students. In 1996 SCP and the Special Collections Department merged to enhance access to rare books, manuscript collections, and the University Archives. We formally renamed the combined departments in 2000 the Digital Library and Archives.

In 2007 DLA and Special Collections returned to being separate departments while continuing to collaborate to enhance online access to the library's unique and rare archival resources. The VT ImageBase hosts historical photographs as well as more contemporary images from the International Archive of Women in Architecture. DLA also created and maintains online resources such as the IAWA Biographical Database and the Survey Database where data is both collected and displayed. In April 2007 we began gathering documentation from the out-pouring of sympathy, some of which is available from the VT Memorial Archive, a collaboration with Rutgers University. DLA is in the process of developing the Prevail Archives for the university's historical materials related to those tragic events.

DLA hosts a growing number of faculty projects and VT publications, including Employee of the Week.

DLA also collaborates regionally, beginning in 1992 when we hosted the first online news report from the Roanoke Times. Since 1995 the public has had access to the news as reported by local-CBS affiliate WDBJ7. DLA also provides a home to the South Atlantic Humanities Center and works with other universities through an award from the Library of Congress to develop digital preservation strategies tested in the MetaArchive of Southern Digital Culture.







    Behavioral and Brain Sciences publishes important and controversial interdisciplinary articles in psychology, neuroscience, behavioral biology, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, linguistics and philosophy. Articles are rigorously refereed and, if accepted, are circulated to a large number of potential commentators around the world in the various specialties on which the article impinges. Their 1000-word commentaries are then co-published with the target article as well as the author's response to each. The commentaries consist of analyses, elaborations, complementary and supplementary data and theory, criticisms and cross-specialty syntheses.

      BBS has rapidly become a widely read and highly influential forum in the biobehavioral and cognitive sciences. A recent recalculation of BBS's "impact factor" (ratio of citations to number of articles) in the American Psychologist [41(3) 1986] reports that already in its fifth year of publication (1982) BBS's impact factor had risen to become the highest of all psychology journals indexed as well as 3rd highest of all 1300 journals indexed in the Social Sciences Citation Index and 50th of all 3900 journals indexed in the Science Citation index, which indexes all the scientific disciplines.
