The Latest News From DOAJ

The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) shared a milestone on Oct. 17: It “now proudly lists 20,000 journals! This achievement is not just a number; it is a testament to our rigorous evaluation process and dedication to ensuring the trustworthiness and quality of scholarly journals in our index,” DOAJ says. “For 20 years, DOAJ has been at the forefront of advocating for open access and facilitating access to reliable academic research. For the DOAJ team, this milestone reflects the tremendous growth of the open access movement and our commitment to transparency and best practice in journal publishing. As the number of journals increases, so does the potential for sharing knowledge, connecting researchers, and advancing science and scholarship.”

On Oct. 20, DOAJ stated, “In pursuit of long-term sustainability for our services, we’re launching a transparent and streamlined model for publishers to support DOAJ from 2024 onwards.” DOAJ now has a “revised and simplified model for publisher support and benefits. The model is based on the principle of fair contribution, including rates for low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and a pricing structure to enable community-led, no/low-APC (Article Processing Charge) publishers to join our community of supporters and contribute to our sustainability.”
