Designed to complement other databases and collections, this multidisciplinary database brings together links to full text for publicly available scholarly content from a number of different sources from around the world, all of which are open access or license-free. It includes content from major subject repositories such as arXiv as well as open access journals. Content includes journal articles, pre-prints, dissertations, conference papers and reports.

As part of our goal to improve access to subscription and open access content, on July 30, 2020, libraries with at least one ProQuest Platform database will have the Publicly Available Content Database added to their subscriptions at no charge.
