Link in "Trust Me..." changed to one that doesn't yield a 404. (The name was correct, but still wouldn't work; I renamed the file itself.) http://walt.lishost.org/2016/01/trust-me-the-other-problem-with-87-of-bealls-lists/

The dataset for The Gold OA Landscape 2011-2014 is now available for download and use--not at figshare (which seems to have broken scripts, no matter what browser I use) but, for now, on my own website. For links and more information:

Dan: Thanks. (Actually, compared to the DOAJ survey, this wasn't that hard, maybe 3-4 hours total. Of course, having the 35%-done DOAJ survey at hand didn't hurt.)

Sigh. ,xlsx, not .xslx. Thanks to Thomas Munro, I've corrected the hyperlinks in this post, which should now actually work. Also: a bigger announcement later today, which will get its own notice here.
