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?
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 show how often works from this journal are referenced in other research papers. This data is obtained from OpenAlex. Even though the accuracy is debatable, it could help you determine how prestigious a journal is on the whole.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
If you are looking for an author or journal article, you can type it in the name, title, or DOI in the search box above to see more results. If you want to see a similar list to this one, take a look on OA.mg
How can I publish my paper on OA.mg?
Our aim at OA.mg 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 For this reason, we do not publish any papers.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 OA.mg so that more people can find and access a journal article.
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.
