5 DIT journals accepted into Directory of Open Access journalsPosted: 23 September, 2015
Five peer review open access academic journals edited by DIT academics and published through Arrow have been accepted into the Directory of Open Access Journals.
The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) indexes more than 10,000 open access journals covering all areas of science, technology, medicine, social science and humanities. It is a white list of open access journals and aims to be the starting point for all information searches for quality, peer reviewed, open access material. The DOAJ is now pursuing a more rigorous approach to membership so all journals that were accepted into DOAJ before March 2014 are now required to reapply in order to maintain the highest standards.
