Milestones: Directory of Open Access Journals Reaches 1 Million Searchable Articles
Congrats to the DOAJ team not only on the milestone but also the launch of the new platform.
From DOAJ Announcement:
We have just completed the transition to a new environment and launched a new platform with integrated functionality for sharing, exporting and enhanced search/browse functionality: at the article level, search results can be filtered by language and publication year and by license and publication fee; at the journal level, you can filter by subject, by country, by license and by publication fees. These facets will be developed further in the months to come.
We are also very proud to announce that the DOAJ has reached two important milestones:
- For the first time since launch in 2003, more than 50% of the journals are providing metadata at article level. We will continue to work with the 2000+ publishers to increase this figure.
- More than 1 million articles are now searchable in DOAJ which means more than 1 million article-level metadata entries are available for harvesting! We expect this figure to increase significantly in the months to come.
