Current membership criteria are as follows. The journal must:
- satisfy the 5 Fair Open Access Principles;
- allow the possibility for authors to publish their paper in English;
- clearly display its membership of the network on its homepage;
- be judged to be sufficiently high quality, international, and sustainable by the steering committee.
Membership is reviewed via an annual audit. We expect that the membership criteria will become more stringent over time – for example listing in DOAJ is very likely to be required for 2019. If you know of a good candidate journal, please let us know.
