Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access is an international movement that aims to provide free and open online access to academic information, such as publications and data
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
Our aim at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not publish any papers. What we do is that once a paper has been published, we index it in so that more people can find and access a journal article.
What is an APC?
The Article Processing Charge (APC) is the fee that publishers of some open access journals charge in order to publish articles.
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
