Bangladesh Journals OnLine (BanglaJOL)

Bangladesh Journals OnLine (BanglaJOL) s a database of journals published in Bangladesh, covering the full range of academic disciplines. The objective of BanglaJOL is to give greater visibility to the participating journals, and to the research they convey.

Bangladesh Journals OnLine (BanglaJOL) was initiated in June 2007 and officially launched in September 2007. It is a project supported by INASP. It aims to promote the awareness and use of Bangladesh-published journals in all disciplines by providing access to tables of contents (TOCs), abstracts and full text on the Internet.

BanglaJOL uses the Open Journals System created by the Public Knowledge Project based in Canada. This software is open source and allows the journal content listed on BanglaJOL to be indexed through Open Archives Initiative search engines dedicated to research, which harvest the metadata for each journal article, making this work readily available to a global audience, and giving the journals greater visibility among the worldwide research community.
