Happy New Year to all of you! We have a gift: two shiny widgets! You can now embed a set of search results or a DOAJ search box directly into your web sites.
Embedding search results
It works like this: 1) carry out a search in DOAJ 2) filter and refine the results until they are as precise as you need them 3) use the ‘share|embed’ button at the top of the search results to reveal the code that you will paste into your web page. The results that you embed in your site update automatically as DOAJ updates.
Some possible uses might be: a publisher can now display a list of all its journals or articles, indexed in DOAJ, on its own site; a library can display all DOAJ indexed journals with no APCs that have the Seal; a researcher might embed a list of all open access articles with a CC BY license that are pertinent to her research group.
Embed a DOAJ search box in your site
You can also embed a DOAJ search box directly into your site, allowing your users to search for open access, peer reviewed journals and articles directly. A user carrying out a search in this way will be taken to the search results in DOAJ. The search box can be embedded into your site, library portal, web page or blog, making quality open access material more easily accessible alongside other content.
We’ve created a new page for the widgets which has a little more technical detail on how to configure them so they behave exactly as you want them to. As ever, we’re always interested in your feedback!
