DOAJ is now more accessible in China

The DOAJ website has been moved from Google-hosted javascript services which were preventing DOAJ being used in China.

Some parts of China block Google and Google services. DOAJ was using Google-hosted javascript services for its search functions. We have moved away from these services, a move which is strategically vital if we want our DOAJ Ambassadors for China to have any success in raising awareness of the site and best practice in open access publishing.

Usage from China is only a fraction of all usage. We are looking forward to seeing that usage grow over the coming months.
