OpenDOAR exceeds 1,300!

The repositories movement continues to grow, as illustrated by the vetted OpenDOAR (Directory of Open Access Repositories) achieving the milestone of more than 1,300 listings.

This is an increase of 283 repositories in 2008 for OpenDOAR, or a 28% increase.

My apologies for missing the OpenDOAR number in the Dec. 31, 2008 Dramatic Growth of Open Access. I'll add an estimate of 1,300, but if someone has a more accurate number, please let me know.

This post is part of the Dramatic Growth of Open Access series.
