DOAJ: Continued Growth (plus a Creative Commons bonus)

Over at Social Justice Librarian, Devon Greyson has posted an illustration of Creative Commons in Action.

Devon's post takes content from my post DOAJ growth rate nearly doubles in the past year, and adds content of her own, such as this alternative DOAJ growth chart, showing numeric growth as well as the accelerating growth rate.

This to-and-fro is made possible by our respective Creative Commons licenses, CC-Attribution-Noncommercial-Sharealike for IJPE, and the very similar CC-Attribution-Noncommercial for Social Justice Librarian.

Since we are both open access advocates and are interested in alerting people to this Dramatic Growth, we are both a little closer to our goal through the sharing of ideas and charts facilitated by Creative Commons, than we would have been if our work had been "All rights reserved" - or egads, toll access only!
