Subject: [SOAF] A way to promote Open Access

Dear Librarian,

I thought that you could find interesting that Neurobiology of Lipids
(ISSN 1683-5506) home introduced a pop-up easy-to-close window with a
short message and a form to search DOAJ articles at two most visited
journal pages.

Click on one or another links and see the result:

NoL Home page: <>


NoL Noteworthy articles page:

When a query is submitted, a reader is brought to DOAJ search result page
and will hopefully explore the DOAJ further.

The page coding is available upon request to those willing to make DOAJ
search a part of their web resources. The setup will take minutes, and the
form can be provided as a part of existing library web page, perhaps at
eJournal resources. It can be customized to any size and layout to fit the
hosting page style.

In my view, once readily available at a library web page such form could
stimulate faculty and students to search DOAJ directory for articles and,
perhaps, journals to consider publishing at, and thus serve an efficient
way to promote OA.
