Where’s the Open Access (OA)? The process of finding my three OA science articles.

To start my search I complete a Google basic search for “open science research journal.”  With a description that seems to meet my needs I chose the link, http://www.scirp.org/journal/OpenAccess.aspx, which leads me to:  http://www.scirp.org/.  Because I was un-familiar with their collection list, I searched journals by subject.  One of the first journals listed was directly on topic, Advances in Parkinson’s Disease, http://www.scirp.org/journal/apd/.  As this is a dominant illness within my husband’s family I focus my search for articles that may help with “prevention.”

The articles are clearly open access with all showing the open access icon.  Their copyright guidelines give all of their articles the creative commons attribute license.
