The directory aims to cover comprehensively all open access scholarly journals that use an appropriate quality-control system. Journals in all languages and subject areas will be included in the DOAJ.

The database records will be freely available for reuse in other services and can be harvested by using the OAI-PMH (, thus further increasing the visibility of the journals. The further development of DOAJ will continue with version 2, which will allow the journals to be searched at the article level. This is expected to be available in late fall 2003.
