    Title: Universities making Open Access Easy: SciFree Journal Search tool
    Abstract: Together with the Librarians at Stockholm University and the Royal Library of Sweden, we set our sights to create a tool for researchers to find out how and where to publish within the Open Access Agreements. By combining the libraries’ workflow with a simplified output for researchers to quickly find what they need, the Journal Search Tool created an opportunity for libraries and researchers to connect towards open access. An opportunity met by 28 Swedish Universities with thirty-five thousand (35 000) searches in two months, including researchers asking whom they must thank for all these Open Access agreements-their Libraries.
