New publications are available at the Scout Report!

Directory of Open Access Journals

At the time of this writing, the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) indexes and provides access to 1,720,260 articles in 9,986 journals from 134 countries. Dozens of fields are represented here, covering ten broad areas, including Medicine, Health Sciences, Biology and Life Science, Social Sciences, and Technology and Engineering. Think about starting with Latest News, where DOAJ lists updates and interesting tidbits. The heart of the site, of course, is its Search function, where readers can search by Title, Keywords, Subject, and other categories, as well as by Journal Language, Country of Publication, and Publisher. Anyone looking for access to high-quality, peer-reviewed, freely available research will appreciate this innovative site.

Happiness Research Institute

For a more earnest look at happiness, check out the web site of the Happiness Research Institute, an independent think tank based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The fascinating articles here make large scale surveys and empirical projects sensical and relevant to anyone with an interest in well-being- for themselves, their communities, and their nation. From the homepage, click New Report to read about why Denmark is named among the happiest countries on earth, year after year. The Projects section highlights recent undertakings by the institute, including projects on Sustainable Happiness and reports on Happiness and work. While not all reports are available here, a number of them are ready for your consumption and can be read online or downloaded as a PDF. The Research section of the site may also be of interest as it covers “easily digestible” information on happiness from around the globe.
