SComS indexed in DOAJ


Studies in Communication Sciences (SComS) is honored to be a newly admitted and indexed journal to the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).

After establishing SComS as an Open Access journal in 2017 this is a milestone getting recognition for the efforts made by all editors and journal managers of the last years, but also by the HOPE team and Seismo Publishing who are supporting SComS extraordinarily. Thank you all!

To be indexed in the DOAJ, journals are required to meet a couple of requirements concerning for instance an open access policy and free of charge publications.

Articles will get more visibility thanks to a high profile of DOAJ in the open access community. Especially due to aggregators and databases collecting metadata via DOAJ automatically, like Scopus, Serial Solutions or EBSCO.

The meta-data of all published articles in SComS from 2020 and 2021 are already deposited at DOAJ. We are working on the inclusion of those that were published from 2017–2019 at the moment.
