Swiss consortium pledges 216,000 Eur to DOAJ and SHERPA/RoMEO

We are delighted to announce that the Consortium of Swiss Academic Libraries, comprising sixteen libraries and the Swiss National Science Foundation, is the third national consortium to commit to the SCOSS initiative.

swissuniversities, the Rectors’ Conference of Swiss Higher Education Institutions, contributes approximately 50% of the total costs in the framework of the Swiss National Strategy for Open Access.

Thank you very much for your support!

First Colombian University to Support DOAJ!

We are very happy to welcome Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas as the first institution from Colombia to become a DOAJ member.

Colombia is the 11th country in the world with the most journals indexed in DOAJ (325). In 2018 we indexed 59 new journals in DOAJ and we hope we continue to have a fruitful collaboration with Colombian institutions.

The Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas, as an autonomous institution of higher education, guarantees open access to articles so that the content becomes agile and visible. Being members of DOAJ with 12 scientific journals reaffirms the commitment to implement good editorial practices with high quality standards.
