Prepared for "Idealism and Opportunism: The State of Open Access Journals," Library Technology Reports, 2015 (to appear later this year).

Data on 7,301 journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals as of May 7, 2014 that could be reviewed using English.

Data gathered by direct (visual) checking of journal sites. Article counts approximate in some cases.

See data_key sheet for code explanations.

NOTE 2/3/15 at 9:30 a.m. PST: Grades changed for 580 journals from B because of high APCs to A$, since the high APC was the only reason for the B grade.

Additional commentary in Cites & Insights 14:10, 14:11, 15:1 and 15:3

NOTE 3/2/15 at 9 a.m. PST: Dataset revised to explicitly say "2014 Jan-June" in column label, so nobody tries to claim huge drops in articles from 2013. No data changes:as the data-key makes clear, it was always just the first half of the year.
