DOAB reaches 100 publishers

We are pleased to announce that, earlier this month, we have welcomed our 100th publisher: African Minds! Together, these publishers have made over 2800 books available in Open Access through DOAB. Ronald Snijder recently wrote the article ‘Better Sharing Through Licenses? Measuring the Influence of Creative Commons Licenses on the Usage of Open Access Monographs’, published in the Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication. It looks at the role of open licenses and the influence of DOAB. The article is freely available. Read it online or download it here. More in the newsletter:
