    360 KB: Directory of Open Access Journals from Directory of Open Access Journals: Database Name Change -- May 2021

    What is happening to the name of database Directory of Open Access Journals?

    The database Directory of Open Access Journals from the provider Directory of Open Access Journals is named incorrectly.

    Therefore, we will be changing the database name in the Knowledgebase. The content of the database, and the database ID (DOA), will remain the same.

    This change will take effect on 06-May-2021

    • Before 06-May-2021: Directory of Open Access Journals
    • After 06-May-2021: DOAJ Directory of Open Access Journals - Not for CDI Discovery



    Actions you may need to take:

    • If you are a 360 MARC Updates client and have requested the custom specification that adds the database name as it appears in the Client Center/Intota to MARC records, you can expect to see some change records when you get your MARC records after [effective date].
    • If your library uses a third-party service (such as EBSCO A-Z, etc.), custom scripts to manage data, or other non-ProQuest tools that require the database name to function, you should note the change in ProQuest's database name in order to retain the proper relationship/mapping between those tools.
