Dear readers,
I want to announce you that our journal JSER is already included into Directory of Open Access scholarly Resources. What is Directory of Open Access scholarly Resources?
ROAD, the Directory of Open Access scholarly Resources, is a service offered by the ISSN International Centre with the support of the Communication and Information Sector of UNESCO.  Launched as a beta version on 16th December 2013,  ROAD has been developped during 2014 (extension of the coverage, additional features...).

ROAD provides a free access to a subset of the ISSN Register (1,8 millions of bibliographic records, available on subscription, seehttp://www.issn.org/en/understanding-the-issn/the-issn-international-register/). This subset comprises  bibliographic records which describe scholarly resources in Open Access which have been assigned an ISSN by the ISSN Network : journals, conference proceedings and academic repositories. ROAD records are also downloadable as a MARC XML dump and are available as RDF triples.

The bibliographic records are enriched, when appropriate, by metadata about the coverage of the resources by indexing, abstracting, citation databases, registries and journal indicators.
