Partnership: the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research, has just been added as the 72th journal in library and information science in the Directory of Open Access Journals.
DOAJ carefully vets journals, for full open access status and peer review, before adding them to the list. For this reason, being added to DOAJ is an important milestone for a new open access journal. This vetting process adds value for the publisher, and for libraries; good reason for either to consider DOAJ membership.
Congratulations to all my colleagues at Partnership - the association, as well as the journal, and many thanks to all of our authors and reviewers. We are now hard at work on our second issue.
Disclosure: I am the Editor, Theory / Research, for Partnership: the Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research.
