RE: How many (peer reveiwed) journals are there?

When I studied the DOAJ, a lot of the journals therein were to 
all intents and purposes dead in the water.

Joe was careful to make clear that his question was not to do
with the business model of journals, so it is unfortunate that
Phil could not resist the dig at OA publishers.  Having looked at
the first 20 titles listed by BMC I can't see one that hasn't
published papers this year.  Some have only published a few
papers, some have published many.  Maybe I've just missed the
'scores' of titles that publish no papers, but frankly I'm not
going to check them all.  I'll just wait for Phil to produce some
evidence to back-up his claim.
