We are pleased to announce that Acta Acustica, the Journal of the European Acoustics Association, has just been accepted into the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) where it joins over 12000 other high quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals. These journals cover all areas of science, technology, medicine, social science and humanities. This is a great step forwards for Acta Acustica which became the first acoustics journal of a learned society to transition to open access at the beginning of 2020. Indexation in the DOAJ means Acta Acustica is in compliance with the open access policy of the DOAJ and meets all the strict criteria required for inclusion.
“The Directory of Open Access Journals is a service that indexes high quality, peer reviewed Open Access research journals, periodicals and their articles' metadata.” (DOAJ) The aim of the DOAJ is to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals, thereby promoting their increased usage and impact. The DOAJ aims to be comprehensive and cover all open access scientific and scholarly journals that use a quality control system to guarantee the content.
Acta Acustica reports on original scientific research in acoustics and on engineering applications. The journal publishes review papers, scientific papers, technical and applied papers, short communications, and letters to the editor. Its Editor-in-Chief is Univ.-Prof. Dr. techn. Dr. h.c. Manfred Kaltenbacher, Graz University of Technology (TU Graz).
