SocioFakt launches an OA edition

SocioFakt, the Serbian Social Sciences Citation Index, has an offline edition, an online priced edition, and now an experimental OA edition, SocioFakt open access. From the site:
SocioFakt online is an abbreviated, web version of [the offline edition of] SocioFakt, indexing the same journals, but starting from 2000 on....SocioFakt open access is a trial, improved version of SocioFakt online. In SocioFakt open access, not only metadata (titles, abstracts, cited references, etc.), but also full texts of articles are entirely searchable. Metadata for some journals indexed in SocioFakt open access are prepared in Dublin Core Standard for bibliographic metadata exchange, to be accessible by international services and databases, such as Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), extending visibility of articles contained in the database.
