Dear Colleagues

This is excellent, and congrats to DOAJ who is doing a fantastic job!!! Please support them. Stellenbosch University is also in the process of registering the 12 journals that forms part of our pilot project with DOAJ, and hopefully they will appear there soon. You will already be able to find 2 of our journals (to be launched during OA week) on DOAJ:

Scientia Militaria: http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=findJournals&uiLanguage=en&hybrid=&query=scientia+militaria 
Global Media : African Edition: http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=findJournals&uiLanguage=en&hybrid=&query=Global+Media+Journal+%3A+African+Edition+ 

Please also register any OA titles you are aware of. You can done it electronically with:

DOAJ: http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=suggest 
SHERPA RoMEO: http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/feedback.php?fIDnum=|&mode=simple&la=en&type=jpnew 

More places where you can possibly register OA journals to increase its visibility (still have to be investigated by us, but will keep you posted) - please share if you know of other directories/harvesters:

    Electronic Journals Library
    Ulrich's Periodicals Directory
    JournalSeek, Thomson Reuters Master Journal List
    JURN directory of Arts & Humanities ejournals

7000 journals and the DOAJ site in Turkish!

Directory of Open Access Journals is continuously growing - now there are 7000 journals listed in the directory! 45% of the journals are searchable on article level -- more than 600 000 articles searchable.

DOAJ is also aiming to make the site available in other languages than English. Recently the French version of the DOAJ site was launched and now we are happy to inform that the site is also available in Turkish, thanks to the cooperation between Lund University Libraries, Head Office and the consortium ANKOS, who carried out the translation.
