Open Access and Scholarly Publishing: College-Specific Resources: College of Humanities and Social Sciences

A guide to open access resources for WPUNJ faculty.

Selected Open Access Journals in HSS Disciplines

The following downloadable lists were obtained from the Ulrich's Periodicals Directory database. The search criteria used were as follows. Journals included had to be:

  • Actively publishing
  • Scholarly/Academic in content
  • Open Access
  • Peer-Reviewed/Refereed
  • Published in the United States

In addition, only the most common/general subject terms were used in the search to identify journals. Because many open access journals are published outside the United States and are classified with a wide variety of subject terms, these lists are not comprehensive. Nevertheless, they do offer some indication of the extent of open access journal publishing in these disciplines in the United States at the present time.


University Support for Open Access Journal Publications

The Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, in collaboration with the Cheng Library, administers a program to support faculty publication in Open Access journals. Please see this application form for more details.

If you have questions about the program or anything on the application form, please contact Richard Kearney at the Cheng Library (973-720-2165 or by email).

As we continue to explore means to support Open-Access publication and other modes of scholarly publication effectively, we will seek feedback on the success of this model.

Best wishes for success in your scholarly pursuits.
