We have been collecting links to Journals which publish articles of interest to the ECHO network.   

Many of the Journals are open access, but some require subscriptions.  Even if a subscription is called for, however, abstracts are usually available to browse and often contain information of interest.

Many articles that are published in journals requiring subscription are also published (sometimes after a period of time) in open access sources.  Using a service called 'unpaywall' may help one discover free-access versions of articles.   See unpaywall.org

Another helpful tool to consider is Google Scholar (here).  "Google Scholar aims to rank documents the way researchers do, weighing the full text of each document, where it was published, who it was written by, as well as how often and how recently it has been cited in other scholarly literature."

Please feel free to suggest additional scholarly journals that might provide valuable insights for our network.
