Two milestones: 600+ scholarly societies publish 700+ OA journals

Since 2007, +Caroline Sutton and I have maintained a list of society publishers of OA journals. In 2007 <http://goo.gl/SJMON> we found 425 societies publishing 450 full (non-hybrid) OA journals. In 2011 <http://goo.gl/B9RQ6> we released a second edition of our list showing 530 societies publishing 616 full OA journals. After releasing our 2011 results, we posted our list to a Google spreadsheet open to community editing <bit.ly/oaj-society>. As of today, it shows 609 societies publishing 702 full OA journals.

Thanks to all who have helped us keep the list comprehensive and up to date. That includes you, +Emily Kilcer.
