Update on OA journals from Academic Journals

On January 23 2009, there was a post, Many new and forthcoming OA journals from Academic Journals, by Gavin Baker, on Open Access News. A list of OA journals was included in the post, organized by launch date. Today, I visited the website of Academic Journals and reviewed their List of  Journals. At the end of the “Instructions for Authors” section of each journal, the current handling fee (article processing fee) for that journal can be found.

  1. Jim, careful: Some of the journals you list as new actually have earlier back issues. All the journals listed as new in Feb 2009 have archives to 2007 or earlier, for instance.

    [Added by the editor: Gavin, thanks for your comment. I have modified the list]
