DOAJ continues to collaborate with SUES. SUES offers help through mentoring, support towards DOAJ/DOAB inclusion and small scholarships to support day-to-day operations. The current crowdfunding campaign’s goal is to fund 10 scholarships of 1,500 EUR each. (In case there are more funds collected the number of scholarships will be increased).

The SUES Scientific Committee considered 95 journals whose statement of needs was submitted via a SUES web form as part of the evaluation process. Two important points should be made: (1) not all journals and publishers asked for financial support, (2) journals often asked for broader support exceeding the financial capacities of SUES.

The evaluation was conducted iteratively, according to the criteria reflecting the general principles of SUES, especially ensuring that the help will go to the journals in need, and planning wider cooperation with SUES partners. The Scientific Committee took into consideration the journal’s history, recent issues, open access policy/plans, presence in journal indexes, location in regions directly affected by the war, interest in further cooperation with SUES partners, and expression of needs. Given the capacity of the programme, the committee prioritised individual journal submissions instead of university submissions (with an exception of Luhansk).

The 10 listed journals presented below will receive scholarships if the crowdfunding campaign reaches its goal.

The Scientific Committee expressed its awe for the diversity and quality of Ukrainian scholarly journals.

The current SUES actions are a temporary measure and a pilot programme for more sustainable action.
