I regret I’ve had to remove https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/ from JURN. They’re being poisoned with way too many bot-made spam PDFs. Such an indiscriminate approach suggests they may also be picking up questionable material such as pseudo-science and articles from predatory journals.
Acta Baltica Historiae et Philosophiae Scientiarum (history of science).
Sound Stage Screen (sound and musicology of stage and cinema).
Journal of Juvenilia Studies (history of literary juvenilia, also amateur literary publishing by juveniles).
Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections (two-year paywall, March 2018 is the latest open issue).
Praticas da Historia : Journal on Theory, Historiography and Uses of the Past (Portugal, about 30-40% of each issue is in English).
Knowledge Organization (JURN indexes open articles from 1974-2016, although this entails bringing in four years of paywall articles to 2020. The options were i) ‘all to 1999’ and no paywalled articles, or ii) ‘all to 2020’ and annoy searchers by including four years of paywalled articles. It was decided that it was worth some annoyance to get an extra 16 years of open content into JURN).
HortTechnology (horticultural technologies, with substantial cross-over to native plants, tackling invasive disease, and topics such as public education and landscape use)
As of yesterday OAPEN has a new URL path for its record-pages and PDFs, with (it seems) no re-directs. The URL paths have been updated in JURN, but they are not yet known to Google Search — and thus JURN is temporarily without OAPEN results.
Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies (currently free, seemingly back to 1954 — possibly only free for a limited period?)
MUSE (Museum of Art and Archaeology, University of Missouri).
Neurobiology of Language (MIT)
Research in Generative Grammar (not yet full indexed by Google)
A quick test of the new openresearchlibrary.org with keywords Mongolian folk song.
Of the top ten results, only three were very broadly on-topic:
1. Joro’s Youth: The first part of the Mongolian epic of Geser Khan. [Translation of an epic].
4. Long Narrative Songs from the Mongghul of Northeast Tibet. [Neighbouring tradition]
9. Virtual Reality in Village Folk Custom Tourism. [Somewhat connected].
Item 4 was Tibet, not Mongolian, but could be useful for those doing comparative work on regional intertwingling of traditions.
No further relevant hits were seen on the first page, at 20 results per page. There were no relevant results at all on the second page.
Full marks for slick and clean presentation. But, based on this quick test, at present the new service seems to have poor relevance-ranking for a general query. Using the more refined search Mongolian “folk song” gave dire results, surprisingly, and knocked out two of the three relevant results while adding no new ones.
Still, the record pages are useful, all lead without fuss to OA full-text, and are Google-visible. As such, the URL has been added to JURN. At present Google has only tepidly indexed 140 such pages from the new site, but a full indexing can’t be far off. JURN probably already indexes all the sources used by openresearchlibrary.org, but it’s good to have a second option and some researchers — on seeing two links to what are obviously the same book or chapter — may prefer to use the slicker in-browser viewer at openresearchlibrary.org.
