LUND UNIVERSITY LAUNCHES DIRECTORY OF OPEN ACCESS JOURNALS

May 12, 2003

Lund, Sweden - Lund University Libraries today launches the Directory of Open
Access Journals ( DOAJ, http://www.doaj.org ), supported by the Information
Program of the Open Society Institute http://www.osi.hu/infoprogram/ ), along
 with SPARC (The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition,
http://www.arl.org/sparc

The directory contains information about 350 open access journals, i.e.
 quality controlled scientific and scholarly electronic journals that are
 freely available on the web. The service will continue to grow as new
 journals are identified.

The goal of the Directory of Open Access Journals is to increase the
 visibility and accessibility of open access scholarly journals, thereby
 promoting their increased usage and impact. The directory aims to
 comprehensively cover all open access scholarly journals that use an
 appropriate quality control system.  Journals in all languages and subject
 areas will be included in the DOAJ.

The database records will be freely available for reuse in other services
and can be harvested by using the OAI-PMH http://www.openarchives.org/
thus further increasing the visibility of the journals. The further
 development of DOAJ will continue with version 2, which will offer the
 enhanced feature of allowing the journals to be searched at the article
 level, and is expected to be available in late fall 2003.
