JSTOR recently joined the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) Trusted Platform Network, a global initiative bringing together platforms committed to maintaining the highest standards in open access (OA) book publishing.

The DOAB Trusted Platform Network creates a more seamless process for platforms and publishers, including JSTOR, to index their OA books in DOAB by checking and verifying which books meet the DOAB criteria and automatically listing them in DOAB, thereby enhancing their discoverability.

JSTOR has registered more than 10,300 OA books that meet the DOAB criteria. Additional books will be added, including Path to Open books as they transition to OA.
