Open Access resources are freely available sources of knowledge (mainly academic in content).
Examples include academic journal articles, books, conference reports and PhDs.
Don't worry if you find the resources difficult to understand. The information is aimed at university level students to PhD researchers. Sometimes it can be useful to simply read the introduction and conclusion to journal articles for example to gain knowledge about a topic. For more information about journal articles go to the journals tab.

Some public libraries provide free access to scholarly databases for public use.
They contain a wider selection of journal articles than you would find on Google Scholar.
