Re: DOAJ update

The 'volunteer' analysis of what's actually in there is continuing apace -
I have data so far on 523 journals (i.e more than a third of those in the
list) and hope to receive the rest shortly.

Interestingly, a small but significant proportion are 'dead' - website
permanently down, or no new articles since 2003. In a paid-for-journals
world, these would no longer be listed as current...

Subject: DOAJ update

Yesterday we added journal title number 1500 to the Directory of Open
Access Journals http://www.doaj.org/. We are grateful for all the
contribution and feedback we get and we are working hard to try to keep up
with all the suggestions for new journals we are receiving.

The Directory of Open Access Journals has provided downloadable records,
comma separated format
<http://www.doaj.org/articles/questions#metadata_csv>, for a couple of
years. In response to user requests, in a supplement to the 30 day rolling
window of new titles <http://www.doaj.org/new>, we have added a Date Added
field to the downloaded file.

Best regards,
