Occasionally while doing a search, in the area where the results are shown, the particular find is described as available through DOAJ. This stands for Directory of Open Access Journals. Scholarly journals are very often behind some form of paywall. Online you can get access to scholarly journals by paying a fee. Your fees paid to MCC help to pay for access to our databases which have paid for access to many academic journals. In recent years there has been a movement to make scholarly articles freely available. This movement is often called open access. The Directory of Open Access Journals searches articles that are available without a fee. Another open access search tool is JURN.
