What's the right price for an OA article? The 11 publishers in APCLand say it's $1,704. The thousands of publishers in OAWorld say it's $241. Read more about it in the May 2016 Cites & Insights:
The May 2016 issue of Cites & Insights, volume 16 issue 4, is now available for downloading at http://citesandinsights.info/civ16i4.pdf. The issue is 13 pages long. If you're reading it online or on a tablet, you may prefer the one-column 6″x9″ edition at ...

I'm soliciting suggestions for ways to make Gold Open Access Journals 2011-2015 even better than The Gold OA Landscape 2011-2014:

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/

Followup at request: a prelim. list of publishers with six or more journals that were in DOAJ on 12/31/2015 but not on 5/10/2016 (NOT all 1,945 publishers in that list!):

Quoted in Monya Baker's story about the 3,300-journal cut at DOAJ. My complaints about her reporting and how she handled me: None. I think Baker did a good job here. (The last chapter of Gold Open Access Journals 2011-2015 will look at the short-term effects of the cut, but it won't change the rest of the book, which is based on DOAJ as of 12/31/2015.)
Many publications did not reapply after leading directory tightened its quality criteria.
