Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access (OA) is a set of principles and practices through which research is freely distributed online
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
If a journal has a relevance of “100”, that means that the journal is fully related to the concept it is listed under. If, on the other hand, a journal has a relevance of “0”, that means that the journal doesn’t have any relation to the topic it is listed under. So Nutrition might have a low relevance when included in Open Computer Science Journals
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
How can I publish my paper on

What is an APC?
Authors usually have to pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of peer review, publishing, and dissemination of published papers in a given journal.
What are the different Open Access types?
Depending on the license, a research paper might be categorised as a) Gold Open Access, b) Hybrid Open Access, c) Green Open Access, d) Bronze Open Access, e) Diamond Open Access, or f) Black Open Access
