Abstract

Using the 2015 Library Publishing Directory, I have created a list of OA "campus-based faculty-driven journal" titles and cross-referenced this list with the title contents of the Directory of Open Access journals. This 24x7 presentation will present my findings of gaps within DOAJ and look for answers as to why titles are not found in both directories. Secondly, the original set of OA titles was cross-referenced in ROAD (Directory of Open Access Scholarly Resources) to compare the number of matching records. Finally, the list of OA journal titles was also searched within one library's discovery tool to determine the level of discoverability in a non-Google setting for a specific user group. The goal of this presentation is to begin a conversation of where OA materials are indexed, but more importantly, to think more about how users are (or are not) finding the OA material using indexes.
