A-weighting is curves used to weigh sound pressure level
Open access (OA) is a key part of making research shareable and reproducable. All journal articles published open access undergoe the same rigorous peer review process.
Our team made this list of A-weighting Open Access journals with the aim to help you to decide where to publish your A-weighting manuscript.
The list below includes all high-impact factor A-weighting journals as well as new up and comming journals where it might also be more affordable to publish.Rather than displaying just the most relevant A-weighting journals, we have made an in-depth list of all the open accesss A-weighting journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best A-weighting venue for your manuscript.
The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.
All the open access A-weighting journals in this list are indexed in OA.mg.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access is the free online access of research articles coupled with the rights to use and distribute these articles fully in the digital environment.
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
Relevance is used to quantify the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, “Brain Stimulation” has a relevance of “24” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it is somewhat related to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations represent the times that works have cited papers under this journal. In our case, we obtain this data from OpenAlex, an open catalog of scholarly papers. It's hard to say how accurate it is but it can give you a general idea on how prestigious the journal is. The more work that have cited it, the better.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists, look on OA.mg
How can I publish my paper on OA.mg?
Our focus at OA.mg is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not offer publishing services.
What is an APC?
An APC is the article processing charge that an author of a given research paper has to pay in order to get it published in a journal. APCs are most commonly used by open access journals or by journals who offer open access publishing.
What are the different Open Access types?
Different open access types are commonly described using a colour system. The most commonly recognised names are “green”, “gold”, and “hybrid” open access; however, “bronze”, “black”, and “diamond” also exist.
