GRAFT has updated, the first update since last October. GRAFT enables a swift Google search across the world’s repositories, searching records and full-text alike. GRAFT currently searches around 1,600 more repositories than OpenDOAR, and does so via a thoroughly cleaned and up-to-date set of index URLs. Please access GRAFT via the page linked above, rather than any browser bookmark, to enjoy the newly added range.
Humanum Review (Quarterly Review of the John Paul II Institute).
Jewish Observer (1966—) (Difficult to index, sadly, despite indexing the TOCs at http://ourlli.org/the-jewish-observer*/ and also the PDFs at http://ourlli.org/wp-content/uploads/*/*/JO*.pdf – where * is a wildcard. Someone might care to make a proper TOCs blog for the title, which would be better indexed by Google?)
Selected out-of-print issues of Ars Orientalis and Ars Islamica as full-text (the same volumes were already partly covered by the Smithsonian, but only via bare record pages interfacing with an Archive.org book-player).
Now indexing the Burlington magazine (art history) full-text volumes directly on Archive.org.
Better indexing of the publications of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
PLOS articles are now less verbose in JURN search results. JURN now focusses results on the core article, by actively excluding sub-pages for ‘figures’ / ‘citations’ / ‘supplementary’ / ‘comments’. A similar measure has been taken to make Nature’s open article content less verbose, by excluding the ‘tables’ pages for their articles.
Online publications of the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research and their journal Diagonal.
Exhibition (journal of the U.S. National Association for Museum Exhibition, with a two issue partial paywall)
Conservar Patrimonio (Portuguese art conservation journal, partly in English)
Fixed indexing of the scielo.org aggregation sites, to make them less verbose in search results. Specifically, several of the Scielo sites recently introduced an ‘export’ page for each and every citation. These ‘export’ pages are now blocked from JURN’s results.
For those interested in end-of-year OA tallies, I can report that this blog recorded a total of 340 journals added to JURN in 2016. Nearly all those titles publish in English on topics in the humanities or the natural world. If the 340 were combined with the worthy foreign language journals URLs also added in 2016, then the total OA journals added to JURN might be around 500. Which means it’s been a somewhat slower year than 2015, which added 450 new titles published in English.
Chester Antiquary (Chester Archaeological Society, UK)
