The May round of our free Open Access indexing competition comes with a focus on the broader context of scholarly communication: education. The new APC-free, Open Access journals that we selected will be fully integrated into, and promoted on, our platform. They hail from different corners of the world, as part of our mission to break down geographical barriers to research.
They facilitate critical and open discussion on all levels of the educational system and bring issues like transparency in education, inequalities in learning opportunities, educational management, students’ experiences in higher education, and bringing evidence-based best practices to the table.
Anyone can freely read, download, and share any of the articles, as well as export the article citation metadata to their favourite reference manager. ScienceOpen users can:
- Add them to a new or existing collection
- Recommend them to their colleagues
- Publicly peer review and comment on any they wish
- Invite their colleagues to peer review them
These new journals are:
Publisher: Institute of Business Management
Society/Institution: Institute of Business Management, Karachi
Country of publisher: Pakistan
The Journal of Education and Educational Development focuses on both theoretical and applied research studies in education and related disciplines. Through publishing research articles, case studies, book reviews, and critical reviews, the journal intends to present its audience with interdisciplinary themes on education and educational development.

Today we are pleased to announce the winners of the April round of our free Open Access indexing competition.
These journals come from around the world, and by offering free-to-publish Open Access options for researchers, we in turn offer them free integration into our platform to help build their status and visibility.
The following journals will all become part of our next-generation indexing and discovery platform:

Revista do Instituto Florestal (Brazil)

It publishes articles in the following thematic areas: urban tree planting, protected areas and nature conservation, wildlife conservation, ecology, forestry policy and economy, genetics and forest improvement, geography and environmental planning, hydrology, plant taxonomy and phytogeography and forest products technology.
All of these journals fulfil the double challenge of publishing high-quality Open Access research while charging no APCs to their authors. As such, they provide significant contributions to open scholarship as well as democracy in science from month to month.
To support these great efforts, we recently partnered with the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) to help make these valuable sources of the published scholarly record more visible and easily accessible in a competitive global research environment.
Bringing together results from different fields of research and geographical regions, successful applicants will add new colours to our research network of over 31 million articles and growing.
Thank you to everyone who applied for the latest round of ScienceOpen’s free indexing competition! We are also grateful to DOAJ for their valuable contributions.
