First a question to Sally Morris: Would you say that the more than 750 free scientific e-journals from 16 Iberoamerican countries in Latindex are sloppy too? Secondly I want to ask: Does anyone have a comment on these figuers showing sientific medical Latin American journals reprsentation in some well known databases. Are we talking about sloppy publications?

The findings so far of our study comparing DOAJ with other journals does suggest that many more of them describe as 'peer review' a process that is totally or partially in-house; I would have thought that correct 'classical' peer review was normally conducted by external 'peers', with the Editor-in-Chief having a final decision in case of differences of opinion.

"The impact factors of nearly 200 open-access journals are similar to those of traditional journals in the same fields, according to a recent Thomson ISI report. The 58 open-access medical journals that receive impact factors fell, on average, at the 40th percentile of all medical journals, with all but 11 ranking higher than the 10th percentile. For life sciences journals, the 37 open-access journals were ranked, on average, at the 39th percentile." http://www.biomedcentral.com/news/20040427/05/ http://www.isinet.com/media/presentrep/acropdf/impact-oa-journals.pdf Open Access is treasonous?
