DOAJ: Directory of Open Access Journals

Copenhagen, Denmark - It is now 10 years since a new initiative was set in motion: The Directory of Open Access Journals is the result of a unique venture between Lund University Libraries, supported by the Information Program of the Open Society Institute, along with SPARC (The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition.

Back in February 2003, the then Program Manager of the Open Access Program at the Open Society Foundations, Melissa Hagemann said, somewhat prophetically, "Open access journals can compete with traditional subscription-based journals if librarians and users are made aware of these titles, and the Directory of Open Access Journals is the way to publicise their existence." Happily, she was right and today, DOAJ sits at the very heart of open access scholarly content on the web.

Untangling Academic Publishing: A history of the relationship between commercial interests, academic prestige and the circulation of research

In 2013, the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council funded a 4-year project on the editorial and commercial history of the world’s oldest-surviving scholarly journal (‘Publishing the Philosophical Transactions: a social, cultural and economic history of a learned journal, 1665-2015’, AH/K001841). The project is led by Dr Aileen Fyfe at the University of St Andrews in partnership with the Royal Society. The project team convened a workshop at the Royal Society, 22 April 2016, on ‘The Politics of Academic Publishing, 1950-2016’. This briefing paper is informed by the contributions of those who attended that day, and we thank them for their insights. The authors of this briefing paper are a sub-group of those who attended the April 2016 workshop. This report is based upon the primary (historical) research of the Philosophical Transactions project team, combined with a literature review, and the expertise of the other authors (principally in higher education research, and in scholarly communication). We are grateful for the comments of our critical friends: Rick Anderson, Sue Clegg, Steven Hill, Nick Hillman, John MacColl, Sally Mapstone, Cameron Neylon, and Stuart Taylor.
