Ecco una buonissima notizia, una specie di regalo
di Natale per ricercatori e bibliotecari: ci sono
3000 riviste ad accesso aperto censite dalla
Directory of Open Access Journals. Questo
significa che se vengono inserite nel catalogo di
una biblioteca di ateneo, fanno - gratuitamente -
un pacchetto piu' grande di quello offerto - a
pagamento - da qualunque editore commerciale.
Per chi non lo sapesse, si possono importare in
blocco tutti i metadati di queste riviste nel
proprio OPAC, per maggiori informazioni:
