What is DOAJ?
Directory of Open Access journals (DOAJ) is a service which collects and lists scientific and scholarly Open Access journals. Our aim is to cover all languages and subjects. The project was initiated at the First Nordic Conference on Scholarly Communication in 2002 and has since its start been steadily growing, thanks to economic support from our sponsors and members.
In the beginning of Open Access week we had 5514 journals from 108 countries in the directory and we hope that with your help we will increase these numbers throughout the week! Since we are dependent on suggestions from publishers, editors and our users, we need YOUR help to find new journals. Celebrate Open Access week through suggesting new titles to us! Before suggesting, please read through our selection criteria and if the journal seems suitable for the directory please suggest it here – cause wouldn’t it be great to see a journal that you have suggested being a part of this collection?
What will the DOAJ team to celebrate Open Access week?
The DOAJ team will this year offer DOAJ promotion material to anyone interested. Feel free to print and use this flyer.
During the week you can follow the updates of new titles through the RSS feed in the left menu (or in the traditional way by visiting our New titles-list).
How can you and your institution use DOAJ?
Except being a database where you can search for journals and articles, DOAJ is an OAI compliant. This means that its records can be included into another collection – for example a library catalogue – without the effort of having to do it manually. Are you interested in including records of more than 5000 high quality Open Access journals in your library’s or organizations’s digital collection? Please visit our web site and follow the downloading instructions.
