DOAB and the de Gruyter Open Access Book Library

de Gruyter has become the most recent sponsor of the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB), and with this sponsorship, celebrates the launch of the De Gruyter Open Access Book Library. The Open Access Book Library is intended to draw attention to the growing number – and growing importance – of open access books.

Earlier this month, DOAB passed the milestone of 6000 listed OA books. In 2016, the list of OA books grew by over fifty percent for the third consecutive year, and DOAB continues to top the list of referral sites. Starting this year, DOAB is taking part in a European Horizon 2020 project (HIRMEOS), to develop a certification service for OA book publishers. The project will also add new features to DOAB: listing OA chapters of books and automated uploading of OA titles by publishers.
