Tomorrow is the start of DOAJ’s biannual meeting, where team members and colleagues come together to discuss DOAJ strategy and developments, editorial policy and processes. Most of all, it is our chance to re-establish team connections, learn from each other’s experiences and renew friendships.
Previous meetings have taken place in Stockholm, Rome, Copenhagen, and Barcelona. This year, we are heading to beautiful Vienna in Austria, the world’s stage for classical music, opera and schnitzel! We are extremely lucky and honoured that the Library at the University of Vienna has agreed to host us for the 3-day meeting.
The University of Vienna, and Austria as a whole, have been extremely supportive of DOAJ over many years. The Austrian Science Fund (FWF) was the first state funder to agree to provide funding to DOAJ on a nationwide scale. They renewed their investment in 2017, this time joined by the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW).
We thank University of Vienna unreservedly for their hospitality over the next few days.
