Enago Announces Sponsorship of Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)
May 2, 2018, New York: Enago, a leading global editing and publication support organization, is pleased to announce that it is a Patron sponsor of Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), the creators of a community-curated library of open access journals that is aimed at helping authors access open access scholarly research more efficiently.
Enago has served as an instrumental force in propelling research integrity and has shown immense dedication to helping authors with knowledge about research and publishing. With this sponsorship, Enago will aim to bridge the gap between authors and qualified open access research, as part of the forward-thinking, community-focused vision embodied by DOAJ.
Speaking on the occasion, Sharad Mittal, CEO, Enago said, “We are delighted to be a Patron sponsor of DOAJ. Organizations like DOAJ promote values like excellence and integrity that mirror Enago’s vision since its inception, almost 12 years ago. Sponsoring DOAJ is a great way for Enago to increase our engagement with the research community, raise visibility of open access journals, and propagate ethical publication practices.”
With a mission to increase visibility and accessibility of peer-reviewed open access scholarly research, DOAJ has hosted a community-curated library of open access journals. Till date, DOAJ has indexed over 11,200 journals, allowing researchers to explore 3 million articles and counting.
Lars Bjørnshauge, Managing Director and Founder, DOAJ added, “It is a pleasure to welcome aboard Enago as a Patron sponsor of DOAJ. We appreciate this support from Enago, which enables us to further continue developing our services for the community.”
Earlier this year, Enago launched Open Access Journal Finder (OAJF) that uses DOAJ’s validated journal database to help researchers easily find quality, peer-reviewed open access journals. OAJF is a free tool that is powered by AI technology and displays vital journal details, letting researchers filter search results based on different parameters. With optimal security that ensures the manuscript information entered is not saved or retained by OAJF, the tool has been successfully launched in English, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean languages.

About DOAJ (www.doaj.org)
DOAJ is a community-curated list of open access journals and aims to be the starting point for all information searches for quality, peer reviewed open access material. To assist libraries and indexers keep their lists up-to-date, we make public a list of journals that have been accepted into or removed from DOAJ but we will not discuss specific details of an application with anyone apart from the applicant. Neither will we discuss individual publishers or applications with members of the public unless we believe that, by doing so, we will be making a positive contribution to the open access community.
