Celebrating the power of Open Access – Happy Birthday DOAJ!

DOAJ is a one-of-a-kind index of diverse open access journals from around the world, powered by a growing community dedicated to making quality content freely available online for all. ScienceOpen is a proud member of DOAJ for years now, aligning its goal of ensuring the smooth exchange of scholarly information in the digital world with DOAJ’s mission of increasing the accessibility, reputation, usage, and impact of open access journals around the world.

Today DOAJ turns 20 years old, and we want to celebrate this anniversary and years of collaboration with open access publishers and journals that value the power of diversity in scholarly communications!

The power of Open Access

DOAJ has played an important role in advancing the open access movement and is widely regarded for its commitment to open scholarship principles. DOAJ membership increases a journal’s credibility, visibility, and global accessibility while also encouraging open access best practices.

It provides a valuable platform for publishers to reach a diverse audience of researchers and readers all over the world.

Sharing the philosophy of visibility and accessibility, we have created solutions within our open access infrastructure that provide fast content delivery to DOAJ for journals hosted on ScienceOpen, fulfilling requirements for optimal packaging and distribution of metadata and content better than most.

Our open access publishers can maximize the benefits of their DOAJ membership by letting ScienceOpen handle their metadata and the exchange with DOAJ as part of a broader digital publishing solution package that also includes promotional and discovery services in an environment with nearly 90 million publications.

ScienceOpen is proud to work with many DOAJ-indexed journals and to support them in their mission to promote open knowledge and transparency.

Our publishers represent a diversity of academic fields and perspectives, and they believe in the power of open access. Compuscript is one of them, which publishes numerous journals indexed by DOAJ, and at the same time, has trusted ScienceOpen with the management and dissemination of the knowledge produced by its journals.

We are delighted that Compuscript published titles BIO Integration, Cardiovascular Innovations and Applications, Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research and Zoonoses are indexed by DOAJ. Their reputation for indexing high-quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals and for advocating best practices and standards in open access fully matches our ethos as an open access publisher. Acceptance into DOAJ indicates our journals compliance with initiatives such as Plan S for Europe and indicates the titles have met strict criteria with regards to academic publication and international standards for open access.

Morgan Lyons, CEO, Compuscript

DOAJ currently indexes more than 15,000 open access journals from 133 countries, in 77 languages, and spanning 300 subject areas. On their anniversary, we hope that number will continue to increase over the coming years. Happy Birthday, DOAJ!
