From a DOAJ Blog Post:
It has been a little while since we took a good look in the mirror at DOAJ – we have had our heads down, working hard to update the technology and website which deliver the DOAJ services that you know and love. But as the world started to emerge from various lockdowns and we too looked up to plan for this year and beyond, one thing was clear – it was time to finish up on that new look we have been planning.
We had already made big steps forward in our user experience improvements and re-launched the DOAJ website in November 2020. Now we wanted to complement this with a new visual identity, something that reflected our place in the world, our values and our commitment to open access for all.
