DOAJ Project Aims to Keep OA Journals on the Web

DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) provided an update on Project JASPER (JournAlS are Preserved forevER), which began in 2020 as a collaboration among DOAJ, CLOCKSS, the Internet Archive, Keepers Registry, and the Public Knowledge Project “to start addressing the problem of open access journals disappearing from the web.”

DOAJ notes, “Initially a scoping exercise, Phase One has subsequently seen the project partners design, implement and test a process for workflow efficiencies, capacity and usability. Articles from a number of journals have been ingested and documentation has been updated. Along the way, knowledge has been gained and valuable lessons have been learned. … Next up for Project Jasper is a funding drive to enable us to support even more journals and include more preservation agencies.”

For a list of positive outcomes from and challenges raised by the project, read the blog post.
