Open Access to Journal Literature: A Guide

What is open access? This guide includes evidence-based public health resources, grey literature, free full text journal articles ("open access"), domestic access and more.

Association memberships

Area Health Education Centers

Area Health Education Centers (AHECs) provide continuing education based on the recent literature. Many AHECs also have libraries or resource centers.

Paying for full-text journal articles

Most journals are available as either individual or institutional subscriptions. If you purchase the journal with organizational funds and intend for it to be used by multiple staff, then you should purchase an institutional subscription. Institutional subscriptions often allow you to set up online access using your organization's IP addresses so that all on the organization's network may access the publication. You may also buy individual articles on a pay per view or pay per download model.
