ESNBU has been awarded the DOAJ Seal

This is great news! And we're very proud!


The DOAJ Seal is awarded to journals that demonstrate best practice in open access publishing. Around 10% of journals indexed in DOAJ have been awarded the Seal, that is, currently 1,429 of the 15,765 indexed journals in the database. And English Studies at NBU is one of them!

There are seven criteria which a journal must meet to be eligible for the DOAJ Seal. These relate to best practice in long term preservation, use of persistent identifiers, discoverability, reuse policies and authors’ rights.
