Open Educational Resources are teaching, learning and research materials in any medium – digital or otherwise – that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions.
Directory of Open Access Journals is a great resource for identifying OA journals in your area of study.
The site also offers a search engine to find scholarly articles freely available online.
Directory of Open Access Books provides direct access to over 13,000 academic peer-reviewed books and chapters from 282 publishers.
OpenStax, an inititative of Rice University, is a portal for OA textbooks for college and AP courses.
It features OA and paid instructor resources (e.g., PowerPoints, Canvas course shells, and more) alongside its textbooks.
The MOBIUS OER Commons Hub was created to highlight collections and facilitate collaboration around the sharing and creation of Open Educational Resources.
