I just did a quick totting up of the additions to the DOAJ directory. In mid Sept 2011 the DOAJ listed 905 ejournals in the arts and humanities (excluding Linguistics). This is now 1109. That’s 204 such titles added in just over a year. If last year’s DOAJ figure of ‘45% of titles indexed/searchable at the article level’ still holds, and is also broadly true of the arts and humanities titles catalogued, then the DOAJ might currently be offering article-level searching of around 500 arts and humanities ejournals.
