We are happy to inform that our site is now back to normal and our services have resumed. We are still working on a long-term stability strategy and we will be able to update you on that and also provide a more detailed explanation of our issues soon. Thank you again for your patience over the last few weeks.
We deeply regret the current problems with the DOAJ site. After much investigation and active measures, we can state that the DOAJ is effectively under attack from an unknown third party.
We have deployed a number of counter-measures to halt this attack, but with limited success, and are therefore forced to take even more extreme measures to attempt to mitigate this. We hope that this will work but we cannot predict the outcome at this stage.
The DOAJ team would like to apologise for the intermittent service and to let you know we are doing our best to go back to normal operations.
