Upload procedures

Publishers are responsible for their own information about their company and their publications. They are requested to upload the information about their books themselves. Publishers receive an account where they can upload and edit their information.

There are two basic methods to upload the metadata of books:

  • book by book, through an online form.
  • in bulk, by creating a file with the information in a specified format - metadata form.

A publisher guide, including required information and metadata specifications can be downloaded here.

The manual for adding and editing titles in DOAB can be downloaded here.

The Directory of Open Access Books is a service of DOAB Foundation. Please use the Contact form if you have any feedback or questions.
