The first quarter Dramatic Growth of Open Access is now available:
OpenDOAR added 129 repositories for a total of 2,857 open access
repositories. The Bielefeld Academic Search Engine added close to 3 million
documents for a total of over 71 million documents. SSRN added another
7,690 authors this quarter for a total of over 275,000 authors. Internet
Archive added 1.7 million texts for a total of over 7.8 million.
In spite of vigorous weeding and reorganizing, DOAJ is back to ongoing
strong growth, adding close to 3 journals per day, over a quarter million
articles searchable at the article level over the past year.
Congratulations to the Directory of Open Access Books which recently
surpassed a milestone of 100 publishers.

Congratulations and thanks to all of the many individuals and organizations
that are making open access happen.
