19 Diamond Open Access Scopus Journals for your reference. Free! Gratis!!!

Diamond open access is a term used in the context of scholarly publishing to describe a model where research articles and other academic content are made freely and openly available to the public immediately upon publication, and the costs associated with publishing are covered by sources other than subscription fees or paywalls. In other words, in the diamond open access model, readers do not need to pay for access to the content, and authors do not need to pay publication fees (as is often the case in gold open access, where authors pay to publish).

The term “diamond” is used to distinguish this model from “gold” and “green” open access. Gold open access involves authors paying publication fees, while green open access involves authors self-archiving their work in institutional or subject-based repositories. In contrast, diamond open access relies on funding from sources such as research institutions, libraries, foundations, or government agencies to cover the costs of publication.

Diamond open access aims to make research freely available to the widest possible audience while avoiding the financial barriers associated with subscription-based models or author-facing fees. This model is seen as a way to promote greater transparency, accessibility, and equity in scholarly communication. It’s worth noting that the term “diamond open access” is not as commonly used as “gold” or “green” open access but represents an emerging approach in the open access movement.
