We are always looking for volunteers to help us review the applications for journals wishing to be indexed in DOAJ. We have well over 100 people, from all over the world, helping us already. It’s a growing and exciting network to be part of and the work being done directly contributes to the quality of peer-review, open access publishing. Are you interested in joining us?
How much work is it?
We ask our volunteers to give us 4 or 5 hours of their time per week but you are left to manage your own schedule.

We particularly welcome librarians, information studies professionals and students, PhD students, researchers and people affiliated with research institutions.
