Directory of Open Access Journals - A project to provide free full-text access to scholarly journals in a wide range of academic disciplines. International in scope, most of these are not available through VIVA.

Subject Specific Resources

Education - VCCS, SACS and Electronic Journals

Pure Mathematics - VIVA Journals in Mathematics

The list below represents current journal subscriptions in the field of pure mathematics. These journals are provided by the Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA), and include such scholarly publishers as Cambridge UP, Oxford UP, John Hopkins U, and the American Mathematical Society.

The links are provided to individual journals titles so that you can browse through table of contents for selected issues. For that reason, they are only accessible from on-campus. However, you can view them from off-campus by visiting our VIVA database page, selecting the appropriate publisher, and then selecting the appropriate title. Of course, as always, you will need to log in to use the databases from home. Please call 857-7303 for help.

The dates given represent full-text access; however, for many titles table of contents indexing goes back further. Please check individual titles.
