Re: Journals > Peer-Reviewed Journals > Open-Access Journals < Open Access

I would question Stevan's estimate that 2.5% of articles are published in
OA journals.  While it does indeed look as if 2 - 2.5% of peer reviewed
journals are OA (that is, if all those listed by Lund et al are peer
reviewed), I very much doubt that they carry as many articles as the rest.
This is because OA journals are, almost without exception, relatively new
and extremely long-established journals tend to be far, far, bigger in
terms of issues and articles published per year.
