Source code is collection of computer instructions written using some human-readable computer language
Open Access journals publish research articles that are free to to view and download. The main difference between articles in open access journals and those in closed journals is the business model. Both types of articles have to undergo the same peer review process.
Our team made this list of Source code Open Access journals with the aim to help you to decide where to publish your Source code manuscript.
Our list includes all the high-impact factor Source code journals as well as new journals. This should give you a better idea on where you should publish. Rather than displaying just the most relevant Source code journals, we have made an in-depth list of all the open accesss Source code journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Source code 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 Source code journals in this list are indexed in OA.mg.

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?
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?
To search for more open journal lists, look on OA.mg
How can I publish my paper on OA.mg?
At the moment, we do not offer publishing services, that's why we made these lists, so you can find the right journal to publish your paper in. Our goal with OA.mg is to help disseminate research.
What is an APC?
In some cases, articles published in journals are made open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made usually made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services provided.
What are the different Open Access types?
Depending on the license, a research paper might be categorised as a) Gold Open Access, which means the paper is freely available and fully accessible to everyone, b) Hybrid Open Access, which means that the authors can pay an APC to make the paper freely available, or c) Green Open Access, which means that there is a possiblity to make subcription based journal articles freely avaiable by uploading the peer-reviewed article to an instiutional repository. Among these, Diamond, Black, and Bronze Open Access also exist.
