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.

Total numbers for DOAJ arts and humanities (inc. linguistics, philosophy, anthropology and ethnography) are now just over 1,500. When journals with no English language content are discarded from their .csv spreadsheet, that figure is just over 1050 journals. If the 45% indexed at article level still holds true, then at Dec 2013 the DOAJ has article records leading to full text for around 470 titles useful to the English speaking world.
