Re: DOAJ titles in Serials Solutions Stokes, Judith 20 Jan 2009 19:19 UTC


We find DOAJ to be more stable than other free journal sources, but none of them cause us much trouble because there are so many of us accessing them through Serials Solutions, that changes get reported pretty quickly. Occasionally, we discover we have lost free access to something -- rarely anything in DOAJ -- and we report it. Serials Solutions confirms the change and follows up pretty quickly.

I was hoping to hear from some folks who have chosen to add DOAJ to their
Serials Solutions profile.  We are currently considering adding MARC
updates, etc.  Our main concern is that some of the content might be
unstable.  For those who have chosen to do this, how has your experience
been?  Thanks!
