Deduplication of article metadata

Housekeeping! We’re doing some important data cleanup work, improving the accuracy of our data, making it more reliable and relevant for you, our users:

DOAJ is working on cleaning up article-level metadata as we remain committed to maintaining a high-quality directory. We have recently developed tools to assist with the automated pruning of spurious records. As a result you may see the number of articles in DOAJ go up (new articles continue to be accepted) and down (as spurious records are deleted). We already have processes and checks in place to ensure that no new spurious records will enter the catalogue.

Let me know if you have any questions!
