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. Before you do either method, please keep in mind the following things:
1 . We chose not to have volume numbers, just issue numbers. Issue numbers will just keep incrementing.
2 . We decided that the "record number" for an article is the article-id that shows up in the WordPress URI. That is, they are not sequential, numbers are skipped. That's fine. So there is no 'start page', but there is a 'record number'; there is no 'end page'.
3 . Enter the abstract and authors affiliation exactly as found in our published articles.
4 . Enter keywords if there are any. If not, leave this blank To edit by hand go to, enter our secret username/password combination, and do the necessary data entry. To use the XML file to do data entry, make sure the WordPress databases is up-to-date, go to http://xxx/yyy to get the necessary XML, edit the XML so each auther is in a element by themselves, validate the XML against the Directory's schema, go to and upload the friuts of your labors. --[[User:Ericleasemorgan|Eric Lease Morgan]] 10:42, 28 May 2008 (PDT)
