Dramatic Growth of Open Access September 2010

with apologies for cross-posting

The September 2010 edition of the Dramatic Growth of Open Access 
is now available.


DOAJ is now at 5,452 titles, and is adding 3 titles per day A 
BASE search of repositories worldwide encompasses more than 25 
million items, growing at 8,000 documents per day 960 journals 
are voluntarily participating in PubMedCentral; the growth rate 
is about a title per day

This issue asks the deliberately evocative question of whether we 
can now, or soon will be able to, compare open access with 
subscription resources on a numerical basis.  For example, there 
are now at least four free or open access journal collections 
with more than twice the number of titles of the world's largest 
commercial publisher.
