Open Access


Launched in February of 2009, JURN uses the Google custom search engine to make available freely accessible selected/hand-picked, internet-based English language e-journals in the arts and humanities.  There are over 4,200 titles included in the site, from sources such as: DOAJNewJour; and Open Access Newsletter.  The majority of titles are full-text, but a number have partial full-text access.  There are also a number of free book chapters from academic publishers.

Journals included in JURN cover a wide range of subjects, including:

  • Architecture
  • Design and Crafts
  • Theatre and Dance
  • Photography
  • Media
  • Visual Arts

Jurn has a side project, Earworm, which lets you search for academic podcasts, lectures, courseware and radio documentaries.  This includes a number of TED lectures, which we blogged about recently.
