Clarification around when a new journal may apply to DOAJ

To add clarity to our criteria of when a new journal may apply to DOAJ, we are adding new guidance that specifically addresses newly-launched journals:

Newly launched journals must demonstrate a publishing history of more than one year, or have published at least 10 articles. This is in addition to the requirement to publish at least 5 research articles per year.

The application form remains unchanged. The Guide to applying will be updated with this information by the end of the week.
