I’m pleased to say that JURN is now nearer to becoming a useful search tool for open access journal articles in the geosciences. JURN already had moderately good coverage of this science, but after discovering the American Geosciences Institute’s handy directory of Open Access Journals in geosciences I have been able to index a further 30 geoscience journals. I’ve also started to add a list of around 40 further journals that were previously missing from JURN — most of the remaining missing journals are from small nations such as Portugal, Finland, Belgium, Hungary, etc, and these will be added before the end of 2015. In using AGI to compile a list of the missing geoscience journals I’ve taken care to consider only journals from reputable publishers (the AGI’s directory appears to have an open policy of listing all applicants).
