Open-Source Databases

CORE
CORE is a multidisciplinary aggregator of open access research. It allows users to search more than 66 million open access articles. While most of these link to the full-text article on the original publisher's site, five million records are hosted directly on CORE.

ScienceOpen
Functioning as a research and publishing network, ScienceOpen offers open access to more than 28 million articles in all areas of science. Although you do need to register to view the full text of the articles, registration is free. 

Directory of Open Access Journals
A multidisciplinary, community-curated directory, the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) gives researchers access to high-quality, peer-reviewed journals. It has archived more than two million articles from 9,519 journals, allowing you to either browse by subject or search by keyword.

Get Help Connecting from Off Campus

All of these resources are free for MJC students, faculty, and staff. 
 

Why Login:

Although the MJC Library would like to offer open access to all of our research resources, license agreements with the publishers of our databases and eBooks require that only MJC students, faculty, and staff be given off-campus access to these resources. 
 

How to Login:

All you need to do is login just like you do for your MJC email or Canvas courses.
 

Troubleshooting:

  • If you have trouble connecting to one of our databases, first make sure you have Cookies enabled on your Web browser.
  • If you have problems connecting to databases that you could previously, make sure you have cleared your CookiesHistory, and Temporary Internet Files.
