Milestones: Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) Reaches 30,000 Books From Over 400 Publishers
From the DOAB:
The number of open access books included in DOAB has grown impressively from just over 10,000 books in 2018 to 31,917 as of today. In terms of publishers, we are happy to see that over 400 publishers are included in DOAB as we strive to improve the coverage of the directory.
Thanks to new pledges of support from Canada, France and the Netherlands we surpassed the halfway point of our SCOSS [Global Sustainability Coalition for Open Science Services] campaign. Currently, we are at 60% of our financial target. In these challenging times, we are grateful for the worldwide support for DOAB and OAPEN and commitment to OA books. Have a look at the updated supporter page on the DOAB platform here, now consisting of nearly 50 SCOSS supporters and DOAB members.
