DOAJ Seal awarded to The Journal of ExtraCorporeal Technology demonstrating “best practice in open access publishing”

We are delighted to announce that The Journal of ExtraCorporeal Technology (JECT) has been awarded the DOAJ Seal. This seal signifies that the journal has demonstrated “best practice in open access publishing” relating to “long term preservation, use of persistent identifiers, discoverability, reuse policies and authors’ rights.” Find out more about the DOAJ Seal here.

Earlier this year, in February, JECT was accepted into the Directory of Open Access Journals, joining over 20 000 other high-quality, open access, peer-reviewed journals. Only approximately 10% of the journals indexed in the DOAJ receive the seal, signifying that JECT is distinguished for its excellence within the academic community.

JECT joined EDP Sciences and became fully gold open access in January 2023, ensuring the highest possible accessibility to quality research in the field of perfusion. JECT has served as the official publication of AmSECT since 1967 and supports a global community of perfusionists, anesthesiologists, surgeons, and researchers in these fields where technology evolves continually. AmSECT is fully funding the cost of article processing charges (APCs) for AmSECT members. The journal’s international editorial board is comprised of leading experts from several countries.
