October update on Gold Open Access Journals 2011-2015: now more than 8,000 downloads--more than 9,000 including the excerpted version! http://walt.lishost.org/2016/10/gold-open-access-journals-2011-2015-october-update/
It's October 31–the last day of the month, when I fetch usage statistics for my websites (as always, omitting about 18.5 hours of that last day), so here's an update on GOAJ–just the total numbers this time: Paperbacks: Yay! Two copies of GOAJ itself sold. So far, none of the others (I recommend ...

End-of-August update on Gold Open Access Journals 2011-2015: now more than 5,600 copies of GOAJ--and more than 900 copies of The Countries of OAWorld. (Coming later this year: Gray OA--Gold OA Beyond DOAJ). http://walt.lishost.org/2016/08/gold-open-access-journals-august-summary/
Here's an update on download numbers for GOAJ–noting as usual that, other than Lulu, numbers are probably about 3% low because the last day of each month doesn't get counted (after 5 a.m.). Paperback books: Still zero. GOAJ PDF: 35 copies from Lulu; 5637 from waltcrawford.name (that's three and ...

A quick summary of what I believe to be (as close to) all of gold OA (as we're likely to get), at least for 2012-2013: http://walt.lishost.org/2017/01/all-of-gold-oa/

If this article http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1751157716301523 is even close to being right--and I have no reason to doubt it--there's finally a good figure for how much we undercount OA by omitting hybrid: 2.8%--for 2013, 13,994 hybrid as compared to 493,475 gold (in DOAJ journals, that is, not including 188,000-odd in "gray" OA journals: include those and hybrid's just barely over 2%: 13,994 compared to more than 682,000).

So: next time somebody says "but you're not counting hybrid articles," a reasonable rejoinder might be "So?"--and, of course, a link to this [fully available] article.
