Bereits 3.000 Open Access-Zeitschriften im DOAJ !

In einer Presse-Mitteilung vom 12.12.2007 (NOW THERE ARE 3000 JOURNALS IN THE DIRECTORY OF OPEN ACCESS JOURNALS!) informieren Lars Bjornshauge und Anna-Lena Johansson, dass das DOAJ mit heutigem Tag 3.000 Open Access-Zeitschriften nachweist:

We are very pleased to see that the usage of DOAJ is constantly increasing on all parameters. Every month visitors from more than 160 countries are using the service, hundreds of libraries all over the world have included the DOAJ titles in their catalogues and other services, and commercial aggregators are as well benefiting of the service.

The goal of the Directory of Open Access Journals is still to increase the visibility and accessibility of open access scholarly journals, and thereby promote their increased usage and impact. The directory aims to comprehensively cover all open access scholarly journals that use an appropriate quality control system. Journals in all languages and subject areas are welcome. To maintain the quality of the service we also have to remove titles from DOAJ if they no longer live up to the selection criteria. 96 titles have been removed so far during 2007.
