Historical APC data from before the April upgrade

Historical OA APC data from the DOAJ website – reblogged from the DOAJ website and also copied below as not all of the data was copied.

The following is copied from the DOAJ News Service

In my post the other day, I promised to provide the APC information from the old site. Here it is as of today:

APC? Number of journals

N 6283 (67.6%)
Y 2999 (32.3%)
No info 9 (0.1%)
TOTAL 9291

Today there are 10,508 journals in DOAJ which leaves 1217 journals unaccounted for in the old APC data above. These are all journals that have been accepted into DOAJ under the new criteria. (We have accepted 1217 journals into DOAJ since March 2014.) We know from the new data that 364 of them do have APCs. Therefore 853 journals have NO APCs. Then we can work out the following TOTALS for ALL journals in DOAJ:

APC? Number of journals

N 7136 (67.9%)
Y 3363 (32%)
No info 9 (0.1%)
TOTAL 10,508

This also means that the APC facet on the new site should display:

APC? Number of journals

N 853 (8.1%)
Y 364 (3.5%)
No info 9291 (88.4%)
TOTAL 10,508

88.4% of all the journals in DOAJ have yet to reapply.
