Canadian Military History (Already indexed, this is an alternative mirror archive of the same issues. Held at Scholars Commons @ Lanier)
Open Textbook Library, University of Minnesota. Seems to be an overlay catalogue. Some they link to are previews, such as Introduction to Sociology which is only a 30-page preview.
Knowledge Unlatched has just released a substantial part of its first open book collection, which is being indexed by JURN.
Completed the addition of URLs from the open ejournals in ornithology list. JURN now has excellent coverage of free and open ornithology journals.
An intensive ‘spring cleaning’ of JURN has been completed over the last several weeks, and JURN has successfully expanded its coverage. So now seems like the time to start to promote JURN. I’m now seeking a short-term unpaid volunteer:
Call for a volunteer: The curator of the open access academic search tool JURN (www.jurn.org) is seeking a recent graduate, or a former PR industry professional. During May and June 2014 you will develop and drive a short publicity campaign to promote awareness of JURN. The aim will be to reach scholars, researchers and activists around the world, many of whom operate outside of academia. During May you will map the key channels and niches suitable for the promotion of JURN, briefly noting the best and most efficient way to reach each of these. You will then craft a small repertoire of tailored campaign communications, and plan a timetable of actions. Your awareness campaign will then roll out under your own direction in June 2014. Interested in adding work for JURN to your CV? Then please apply via posting a short comment anywhere on the JURN blog.
Added PLOS Collections, which hosts themed/curated overlay collections of PLOS articles. JURN is only indexing the “issues” pages for these.
Added full-text at PubMed Central Canada.
Better coverage of animal paleontology (fossils).
Experimentally indexed just the open access articles on http://www.sciencedirect.com, for better current coverage of the hard sciences. Probably not much use to most JURN users, but some may occasionally find it a useful addition to the search results.
Added URLs targetting the full-text PDFs at ten major open access academic repositories. Selected from the larger repositories which also appear to have abundant thesis material outside of science or medicine. These heavyweight new arrivals don’t appear to distort the search results.
Added more “exclude” URL blocks, intended to weed out the bulk of the CVs posted on researchgate.net.
A couple of small journals were found to be infected with “buy cheap” spam, so their URLs were reworked so as to just index the unaffected tables of contents.
IEEE was experimentally added to JURN two weeks ago. It’s now been removed, since the PDFs URL (that had appeared to be giving free full-text) now leads to their paywall.
