Open access articles searching in the Library catalogue

When you search for articles in the Library catalogue (1), articles that are freely available under an open access license are identified by the OPEN ACCESS icon (2) indicating that the content can be read online, and in many cases freely downloaded as well, without needing to login as a Library member.

You can also apply the Open access journals filter (3) so all the articles included in the results list will be available in open access publications.
