Directory of Open Access Books Survey

The Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) is currently running a survey to help them learn about needs and expectations with respect to the services, workflows and protocols that they are developing for the DOAB. Please do take part in this survey as it is an important step in terms of establishing quality assurance for open access monograph publishing. Official invite below:

The Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) is a discovery service for Open Access monographs and a metadata dissemination service. DOAB provides a searchable index to peer-reviewed monographs and edited volumes published under an Open Access business model, with links to the full texts of the publications at the publisher’s website or repository. DOAB allows aggregators, libraries and other service providers to harvest metadata on Open Access monographs in order to integrate these in their catalogues and services.

The questionnaire contains approximately 15 questions and takes about 10 minutes to complete. The collected data will be anonymised.
