IJBiotech finds its way into the DOAJ

 

If you peruse the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) website, you might be surprised to find a certain publication hiding amongst the other biotechnology journals. In fact, it's true! We're happy to announce that, as of 16 September 2018, IJBiotech is indexed in the DOAJ.

While the main aim of many indexing services is to create a database of exemplary journals, the DOAJ provides the unique benefit of highlighting the journals that are dedicated to both the free flow of scientific knowledge and transparency in editorial practices.

Not only are readers of IJBiotech able to read any article free of charge, but they are free to share and adapt these articles, promoting the research therein or using it to inform their own research. Authors, meanwhile, hold the copyright of their articles, as well as its publishing rights, enabling them to redistribute their paper in any manner they desire or to deposit it into any archive or institutional respository without restrictions. This policy is part of our commitment to helping the field of biotechnology deliver on its promises to humanity, in aiding the development of new medicines, in increasing food security, in treating waste and reducing pollution, and much, much more.

We are steadfast in our belief in the ethical responsibilities of scholarly publications to readers, authors, and the greater scientific community, and we're proud to see our journal in the DOAJ.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's IJBiotech in Scopus!

 

We're pleased to announce that IJBiotech has been accepted for inclusion in the Scopus database, effective 16 June 2018. Within the next three months, we will begin the indexing process, following which you will be able to find the journal on the Scopus website.

We view this in part as a validation of our continued efforts to develop IJBiotech into the ideal platform for the publication of novel studies in biotechnology, particularly those originating from Indonesia, which will always be an ongoing process of self-evaluation and refinement. As such, this marks an important step in the progress of our journal. While inclusion in Scopus can serve as an indicator of a journal's quality, it should not be the goal of any publisher, but rather inspire them to work even harder to maintain the trust readers place in them.

What this decision ultimately means for IJBiotech is that we will seek to serve our readers with even better content, and will strive to ensure that IJBiotech lives up to the greater responsibilities that come with being indexed in Scopus.
