Numbers and shares of Open Access Journals in Sociology charging publication fees (article processing charges APCs)

Herb, Ulrich

On the eleventh of June 2014 the Directory of Open Access Journals DOAJ listed 109 sociology journals.  For these journals the information on publication charges was wrong in more than 10 % of the cases. Focusing on the eleven journals that - according to the DOAJ - used (always or conditionally) APCs the situation is even worse:  10 of these journals (90,9 %) were categorized wrongly.

In fact only three out of these 109 journals (2,75 %) are charging their authors. The files contain corrected information for the 109 journals including the sums charged by the journals.
