*The DOAB Foundation is pleased to share that the Directory of Open Access

open source environment. The renewed DOAB platform offers additional
functionalities and features, improving the service for all stakeholders. *

DOAB team is very excited about this development. Transitioning to the open
source DSpace platform represents an important next step for the DOAB

The transition of DOAB to an open source environment comes at a time where

proving to be of critical importance to users worldwide.
