For a number of years now, I have been trying to highlight scholarly Open Access (OA) content and its benefits to the forced migration research community. However, because I organize my blog posts around different themes and geographic regions, some of this content may get overlooked by visitors. Therefore, in this new year, I plan to begin sharing mini-bibliographies of the OA content I have posted to date, on roughly a semi-monthly basis. I hope this format will make it easy for you to share with any of your colleagues who aren't currently following this blog!
If you are not familiar with Open Access, please visit my other blog for an introduction.

Because these articles are published as Open Access in traditional subscription-based journals, they are not as easy to "discover" as articles published in all-OA journals. I make a point of trying to track these items down so they don't get bypassed.
