Some (serious) open access journals

June 29, 2013

Since the list of mathematics open access journals over at the Directory of Open Access Journals is both incomplete and full of obscure journals, here is my subjective list of serious ones. Feel free to mention omissions (although I reserve myself the choice of possibly not adding them).

[Edit: in fact, I am mostly interested in serious ones which moreover do not charge any submission fees (so-called ‘article processing charges’ APC). So, only those will be listed (I’ll make an exception for some journals that have APC with a generous fee-waiver policy).]
