In this 1-hour webinar, Professor Kamel Belhamel (Managing editor of DOAJ), will explore the open access landscape in Northern Africa. The first half of the webinar will look at the barriers faced by scholarly publications when looking to develop and implement open access publishing practices. In the second half of this webinar, Professor Kamel will discuss the benefits for open access journals of being indexed in DOAJ, give some tips on DOAJ evaluation metrics, and explain what editorial boards can do to maximise their chances of acceptance into the index.

What will you learn:

  • Participants will gain an expert overview of the open access publishing landscape in Northern Africa, and identify some of the key challenges faced by open access journals in the region – and the solutions to these problems.
  • Participants will learn about how DOAJ can help to increase the impact of their journals (and thereby contribute to healthy submission pipelines and greater future indexing potential)
  • Participants will also learn how to prepare their journals for submission to DOAJ, and maximise their chances of acceptance into the index.

Please note that this is a French language presentation. However, registrants can also opt to receive English and Arabic language translations of the talk which will be distributed after the event.
