Open access and scientific communication have been promoted through several initiatives over the last ten years. Several information sources and databases have been created with the support of SHERPA and OpenAIRE projects .

The OpenAIRE  (Open Access Infrastructure for Research in Europe) portal is a good starting point for researchers to choose a repository. OpenAIRE is an e-Infrastructure designed to promote open science, a portal that seeks to make as much of Europe's research projects, publications and research data available as possible.

The The European Research Council (ERC) recommends favoring sector - specific repositories, such as:
- Europe PubMed Central
- arXiv
- OAPEN Library

Institutional repositories or the multidisciplinary Zenodo, provided by OpenAIRE and managed by CERN, may also be used in their absence.

Directory of Open Access Repositories Managed by the Universities of Nottingham and Lund, OpenDOAR brings together different types of repositories with scientific content that are freely accessible to full texts. Nearly 2,600 repositories of controlled quality have been registered with DOAR, but a search option is also available for their content.

The Directory of Open Access Journals The catalog contains peer-reviewed, open access scientific journals, periodicals and metadata of their articles. Nearly 10% of the 9,400 magazines carry the DOAJ "Seal" quality mark, which confirms that these magazines meet high standards of openness and publishing.

In the case of a DOAJ magazine marked "Seal", the following conditions are met: long-term digital preservation and archiving is guaranteed; journal articles are equipped with DOI, metadata, machine-readable CC license; allow maximum reuse under a CC BY, CC BY-SA or CC BY-NC license; the existence of an archiving policy, its reflection in the relevant register (eg SHERPA / RoMEO); copyright retention without restriction for the author.

SHERPA / RoMEO - Publisher copyright policies & self-archiving. The database contains information on open access to peer-reviewed journals, license conditions and self-archiving options. Nearly 2365 publishers are covered. Information about the journals comes from various partners: the British Library, the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), the National Center for Biotechnology Information (USA) and others.

SHERPA / JULIET - Research funders' open access policies. Contains information on research funding policies, their requirements for open access, publication, and data archiving.
