update upload instructions
There are two ways to get metadata into the Directory of Open Access Journals: 1) by hand, or 2) through the use of an XML file. ''(UPDATE 2014-01-22: DOAJ says, "Until further notice, publishers will only able to upload article metadata to us, using an XML file...Temporarily, publishers will no longer be able to submit metadata to us on an article-by-article basis. If you are unable to produce the XML file, we suggest that you wait until we have reinstated the article-by-article upload feature.")'' Before you do either method, please keep in mind the following things:
# We chose not to have volume numbers, just issue numbers. Issue numbers will just keep incrementing.
# Enter the abstract and authors affiliation exactly as found in our published articles.
# Enter keywords if there are any. If not, leave this blank
SGzt3u Excellent article, I will take note. Many thanks for the story!
#* Download a copy of the DOAJ schema, , to your computer along with the XML file you've just edited.
#* Upload both files to a schema validator service such as
# go Go to the URL listed in the article tracking spreadsheet (administrivia tab) and upload the fruits of your labors. See this [ post] for username and password information.
Note: if there are any sub-elements in the XML fields (e.g., HTML tags), the document will not validate. Also of note, Windows often creates character encoding that breaks with UTF-8, throwing an error on validation.
