Sally, I guess it is a while (2-3 years) since you last studied the DOAJ. Just to inform the list (once again) the DOAJ-team at Lund University Libraries Head Office on an ongoing basis review all the journals (currently 3700+) on an ongoing basis in order to check for compliance with the selection criteria, among other things checking whether the journals are actually publishing articles. This review process has caused removal of some 100 journals during the last couple of years. Of course it is impossible with the available resources to check the journals every day, but the team will eventually discover whether journals have changed publishing model, copyright policy etc. We appreciate all the feedback from the community which helps us maintaining the quality of the service. http://www.doaj.org/doaj?func=membership Lars Bjornshauge Director of Libraries Lund University -----Ursprungligt meddelande----- From: [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] F=F6r Sally Morris Date: den 8 november 2008 00:30 Till: email@example.com Subject: 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.
