Sally Looking back at your research I see that 'a lot' means about 10%. I know that the DOAJ has worked hard to weed-out journals that are no longer current, but these things are fluid and there will always be some listed that are not currently publishing. I'm sure that some of the subscription titles listed in UIrich's as being active are actually no longer current. Unfortunately, you did not do a comparative study so we have no idea if 10% really is a lot compared to subscription titles or just reflective of the general churn in the journals market.

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