  1. It’s alarming how blatantly they advertise their support for open access or adherence to its philosophy, only to charge you $35 when you click “read full article.”

    1. Indeed it is. For that reason, we ask members of the community to get in touch with DOAJ should they find a web site that has a different policy or different information to that which is displayed on DOAJ.

    1. Expanded, in alphabetical order and with ISSN where there is one. At some stage, I will move this to a public Google document (spreadsheet) depending on how long this list becomes.

    1. This journal is currently indexed in DOAJ but has yet to submit its reapplication. If it doesn’t submit its reapplication before the end of December 2015, it will be automatically removed from DOAJ.

  2. This is really helpful. However, it will further help to know which journals had been in the database but withdrew or failed to update their membership. A yearly listing might help in this case.

  3. is International Journal of Health Sciences and Research (IJHSR) (ISSN: 2249-9571) indexed in DOAJ.
    This is what the journal says—
    International Journal of Health Sciences & Research (ISSN: 2249-9571) is indexed/included in the following database.

    Scopemed, DOAJ, Index Copernicus, Google Scholar, Google, HINARI (WHO, Geneva), Genamics, Open Science Directory, AGORA, BOAI, SOROS, Scirus, Index Scholar, Journal Index, eJManager, Find ejournal, NEWJOUR, Open J-Gate, ICMJE, WorldCat, AcademicKeys, Docstoc, ResearchBib, CiteFactor, getCITED, Ulrich’s International Directory and Other Databases.

    1. Thank you Marc! We appreciate your contribution. These two journals have been added to the list.

    1. That journal was removed from DOAJ some time ago and then added back again. I have removed it from our list. Thank you for your contribution.

  4. Dear DOAJ,
    I have noticed that World Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences ( http://www.wjpps.com ) are claiming to be indexed in DOAJ, however I can’t find them in the database. Then I noticed they have written on their “Indexing” subpage that the application is “in process”, but the journal already uses DOAJ logo on their main website. I’m a bit suspicious if they are actually telling the truth about their application to DOAJ…
    Best wishes.

  5. Dear DOAJ, Could you kindly confirm if this journal is authentic and in your list.

    International Journal of Advanced Research in Computer and Communication Engineering

  6. Dear DOAJ,

    Could you kindly advise if this journal is authentic or predatory -Journal of Genetic and Hereditary Case Studies.

    Many thanks
