ROAD, Directory of Open Access Scholarly Resources

ROAD provides free access to those ISSN bibliographic records which describe scholarly resources in Open Access: journals, conference proceedings and academic repositories. These records, created by the ISSN Network (88 National Centres worldwide + the International Centre), are enriched by information about the coverage of the scholarly resources by indexing and abstracting databases, registries and journals indicators.

Main features:

Faceted search

Map search

Search per country, subject, indexing services, journal indicators.and of course per ISSN

Presentation of the indexing and abstracting databases, registries and journals indicators which data are used for enriching bibliographic records

Records freely downloadable as a MARC XML dump (they will be available as RDF triples in 2014).

ROAD serves four major purposes  :

to provide a single access point to different types of online scholarly resources published worldwide and freely available,

to provide information about the use of the Open Access resources identified by an ISSN in the scholarly community,

as such, and once the coverage of ROAD is developed, to give an overview of the Open Access scholarly production worldwide (for statistics purposes for instance),

to demonstrate new ways of using the ISSN for compiling information from various sources.

ROAD will be developed all along 2014:

completion of the coverage (retrospective identification of Open Access scholarly resources within the ISSN Register),

addition of new types of resources (e.g., : monographic series),

ROAD records in RDF triples, using the PRESSoo model as a formalism,

Extension of the list of indexing/abstracting databases and journal indicators used for enriching ISSN records
