Help complete the list of journals that converted to open access.

The Open Access Directory (OAD) maintains a list of journals that converted from toll access to open access (TA to OA).
http://oad.simmons.edu/oadwiki/Journals_that_converted_from_TA_to_OA

If you know any journals that aren't yet listed, but ought to be, could you please add them? If you're close enough to any listed journals to improve their annotations, could you please improve them? Several colleagues have helped on this front over the past month, and the list is much better than it was before. But I know there are still many gaps to fill.

If you could give the same kind of help to the companion list of journals that moved in the other direction, from OA to TA, that would be much appreciated.

The OAD is a wiki open to public edits. To prevent spam, editing is to registered users, but registration is free and easy.

Why do I ask, and why now? 

On April 16, I posted a call for proposals to write a comprehensive literature review on methods for converting non-OA journals to OA. 
https://osc.hul.harvard.edu/journal-flipping 

The OAD list of converted journals will be one of the key resources for the researcher who writes the review. To be as helpful as possible, the list should be as complete as possible. But if completeness is too much to ask, at least the list should include journals from all major categories: for-profit and non-profit, society and non-society, fee-based and no-fee, north and south, sciences and humanities.

Thanks! And please spread the word to others who might be able to help.
