History includes most aspects of cultural research focused on the past and a number of regional, national and state studies journals. The group includes journals, which published a total of 2, articles in and 3, in History OA journals are unusual in several ways, among them—on the good side—the lack of any C or Unknown journals and the nearly complete absence of pay journals. History journals are also anomalous in that the APC-charging journals do not publish more articles than the free ones. Looked at on a journal-by-journal basis, 73 journals published more articles in than in ; 12 published the same number of articles including five that stopped publishing in or before ; 51 published fewer.
Not surprisingly, there are no prolific history journals; perhaps surprisingly, the handful of APC-charging journals are small or sparse, and most articles appear in small and sparse journals. Table 2. Given the tiny number of fee-charging history journals, the table is essentially meaningless, but is included for consistency.
History journals by starting date. There are two obvious points of interest in this table: some of the large and medium journals began more than 20 years ago. The PDF will have hotlinks for the table of contents and table of figures and tables. Best guess is that this effort will take most of the summer; my target is to have it ready by September 14, or before.
You can donate from the home page or—for that matter—right here:. I count on your honesty and good will to not distribute huge numbers of copies, but anybody contributing personally who wishes to send the PDF to their library as an institutional resource is encouraged to do so. Semi-relevant sidenote: Remember when blog posts used to get lots of non-spam comments? Current size is about pages; that may shrink very slightly.

I could make provisions for limited-time purchase through Lulu, at cost of production, if you really need a print copy and have no other way to get one. Later this week, I think, there will be an announcement on availability of a combined report on that work—one that goes beyond the weekly postings.
That table appears below. Read this post and respond. Engineering journals were distinguished from Technology journals based on narrower subjects and journal titles. This group includes journals, which published 19, articles in —and 21, in The boldface percentages grades are percentages of all engineering journals and articles; others free, pay, unk are percentages of the grade above.
Possibly noteworthy: a fairly high percentage of journals are slightly questionable—grade B—including a number of high-volume journals that charge APCs. The small number of D journals includes these subgroups: C: 13 journals with articles; D: two journals, 21 articles; E: three journals, 62 articles; H: five journals, articles; S: three journals, 12 articles. These are fairly striking numbers. Clearly, OA activity is increasing in engineering fields, even without considering journals founded in In all, journals published more articles in than in ; 19 published the same number of articles; published fewer.

Note that the peak is based on through the first half of ; there would be six journals in the Prolific category if all of was included. Larger journals dominate engineering, and as the journal size goes up, the percentage of free journals goes down, radically for the two largest categories which account for considerably more than half of all articles. Starting dates for engineering OA journals. The overall sense of a gold rush from through is certainly apparent here—except that it continues into , with most new journals except APC-charging and many more journals than in previous periods.
No journals began in or Engineering journals by starting date. Other than two earlier cases involving just two journals in each period, the most interesting periods may be , and , in each case with relatively high average articles per journal. Education is the second-largest set of journals in the humanities and social sciences, and could have been larger—some STEM journals could have gone here. Although the group includes journals fifth largest overall , the journals only published 7, articles in and slightly fewer, 7,, in , fewer than 14 other groups.
Boldface percentages grades are percentages of all the journals; others free, pay, unk. There are a fair number of D journals but relatively few articles , including these subgroups: C: eleven journals but only 24 articles; E: 12 journals with 86 articles; H: eight journals with articles; S: 23 journals, 97 articles. More than four out of five articles appear in no-fee journals, and after a sharp drop in that percentage has stayed constant since.
Looked at on a journal-by-journal basis, journals published more articles in than in ; 29 published the same number; published fewer articles. Not only are there no prolific OA education journals, there are almost no large ones and very few medium-sized 60 to articles ; in fact, nearly half of the journals are sparse, publishing fewer than 20 articles per year.
As usual, the percentage of free journals goes down as the article volume goes up. Given the figures in the table, you might expect a negative statistical correlation between APC and article count that is, the numbers get higher as the fee gets lower , but while the correlation is negative It omits one free journal that started in and was in DOAJ early enough to be in the study universe. Education journals by starting date.
