DOAJ: over 200,000 searchable articles!

The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) has passed another milestone! The DOAJ article search now includes more than 200,000 articles. Note: this understates the number of articles in DOAJ journals, as less than a third are searchable at the article level through DOAJ at this point.

Watch for further interesting growth on this measure, as more authors choose to publish in open access journals, and as more DOAJ journals set up article-level searching through DOAJ.

Detail: as of September 5, 2008, from the DOAJ website: As of today 208710 articles are included in the DOAJ service.
