Not only does EBSCO support [the Directory of Open Access Journals] with a generous financial donation every year, their EBSCO Discovery Service and EBSCOhost platforms generate a lot more referrals to DOAJ than any other online platform. EBSCO’s strong support of both open access and open source make them unique among library vendors worldwide.
