DOAB documentation for publishers

Publishers are responsible for providing and maintaining their own information about their organisation and their publications in DOAB. For this purpose, we provide you with an account so that you can log in to DOAB.

Please download our DOAB Publishers’ guide.pdf for full instructions, including how to log in to DOAB for the first time.

Please note that this guide refers to single- and *double-anonymised *peer review, but the DSpace system still uses single- and double-blind. We’re in the process of harmonising the wording used in DSpace to match this guide.
