Ecco una buonissima notizia, una specie di regalo 
di Natale per ricercatori e bibliotecari: ci sono 
3000 riviste ad accesso aperto censite dalla 
Directory of Open Access Journals. Questo 
significa che se vengono inserite nel catalogo di 
una biblioteca di ateneo, fanno - gratuitamente - 
un pacchetto piu' grande di quello offerto - a 
pagamento - da qualunque editore commerciale.

Per chi non lo sapesse, si possono importare in 
blocco tutti i metadati di queste riviste nel 
proprio OPAC, per maggiori informazioni:

Saluti,

>contains 3000 open access journals, i.e. quality 
>controlled scientific and scholarly electronic 
>journals that are freely available on the web.
>
>We are very pleased to see that the usage of 
>DOAJ is constantly increasing on all parameters. 
>Every month visitors from more than 160 
>countries are using the service, hundreds of 
>libraries all over the world have included the 
>DOAJ titles in their catalogues and other

>The goal of the Directory of Open Access 
>Journals is still to increase the visibility and 
>accessibility of open access scholarly journals, 
>and thereby promote their increased usage and 
>impact. The directory aims to comprehensively 
>cover all open access scholarly journals that 
>use an appropriate quality control system. 
>Journals in all languages and subject areas are 
>welcome. To maintain the quality of the service 
>we also have to remove titles from DOAJ if they 
>no longer live up to the selection criteria. 96 
>titles have been removed so far during 2007.
