The B!SON project, conducted jointly by TIB – Leibniz-Informationszentrum Technik und Naturwissenschaften und Universitätsbibliothek and Sächsischen Landesbibliothek – Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Dresden, is a recommender system for quality-assured Open Access journals. While open access publishing requirements are steadly increasing and there are a growing number of open access journals, authors often lack knowledge of relevant open access journals that would be suitable for publishing their own research.The tool will filter a list sorted by relevance from the large number of available open access journals. The data are based on Directory of Open Access Journals and OpenCitations.
