[Forwarded message from Dom Mitchell]

**

In June 2013, DOAJ announced its intention to revise its criteria for
selecting journals to be included in the directory (
http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=3Dnews&nId=3D303&uiLanguage=3Den). A 
public
consultation period followed where feedback was received. The consultation
period incited much discussion on social media, in mailing lists and via
email. Redalyc ran several workshops (see page 5 -
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1Fw8p9XB3C6Qlp1Rm9kRVUwNzg/edit?usp=3Dshar=
ing
 ) dedicated to raising awareness and collecting feedback.

In general, the changes were welcomed by the communities but further
refining was needed: the consultation period produced some important
feedback. A summary of changes and DOAJ's response to each is now
available:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1Fw8p9XB3C6NjBwN3dGNFpqajA/edit?usp=3Dshar=
ing.
Most significantly, it was clear that the term "revised Selection 
Criteria"
was not appropriate to describe the project that DOAJ is undertaking.

As a first step, all changes have been incorporated into a draft Google
form
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1u0F-fVbEHySkTRXvJLkfd1s_ace9-nTzRYIWdJwSR6=
8/viewform
 The
fully functional form will be hosted directly on the DOAJ site, as it is
now.

DOAJ is also publishing its Roadmap of activities until the end of 2013
