The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) at http://www.doaj.org/identifies and provides intellectual access to more than 814 quality-controlled scientific and scholarly journals published in any language--all free, online, and in full text. DOAJ includes twelve music journals with inception date as follows: ECHO: A Music-centered Journal (1999); Electronic Musicological Review (1996); Ethnomusicology Online (1995); Journal of Seventeenth-Century Music (1995); Music & Anthropology (1996); Music Theory Online (1993); Polish Music Journal (1998); Popular Musicology Online (2000)*; Revista musical chilena (1996); Sound Journal (1998); STM Online (1998)*; and Voices (2001)*. Users may search by journal only (title, broad subject, or keyword); a searchable article index is forthcoming. Users may suggest journals for inclusion. (Note: asterisked titles appear as separate entries elsewhere in this column; the others, except for Revista musical chilena and Sound Journal, were previously announced in Notes.)

DOAJ is supported by the Information Program of the Open Society Institute (Budapest), SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), and the Lund University Libraries, Sweden. The database is Open URL-compliant and supports the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) protocol for metadata harvesting. "Open access journals" refers to journals that use a funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for access; they are intended to compete with traditional subscription-based journals.

OCLC added the Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals, 1800-1950 (Repertoire international de la presse musicale [RIPM]) database to its FirstSearch service in November 2003. (Note: the National Information Services Corporation's [NISC] BiblioLine also carries RIPM online.) RIPM provides international coverage of the music periodical literature published from the late eighteenth to early twentieth centuries. RIPM complements RILM Abstracts of Music Literature (available online through CSA Internet Database Service, EBSCO Information Services, OCLC FirstSearch, NISC BiblioLine, and Ovid SilverPlatter [See review on pp. 197-205 of this issue.--Ed.]), which covers writings on music from 1967 to the present. According to an OCLC announcement, RILM and RIPM are beginning a new initiative to expand the coverage of music literature chronologically, with the goal of covering over two-hundred years of music scholarship. See announcement at http://www.oclc.org/news/announcements/announcement48.htm and a description of FirstSearch RIPM at http://www.oclc.org/support/documentation/firstsearch/databases/dbdetails/details/RIPM.htm. See other OCLC-related announcements above.
