Project MUSE - COVID-19 Free

"Content that is freely available on the Project MUSE platform during the COVID-19 crisis will display a distinctive “Free” icon, different from the “OA” icon used for fully open access content on MUSE, or the familiar green checkmark that users associate with content held by their library. MUSE search results (, by default, include any content to which a user has access, so will offer the researcher any relevant free, OA, or entitled articles and books.There are over 2000 open access books and a small number of fully OA journals on the MUSE platform. More information here on MUSE OA content."
