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.

If you have questions or comments about this change, please leave them here.
