The biggest no-fee OA publishers?

A quickie post, partly to see if anybody reads this without social network publicity:

Which publishers publish the most *no-fee* gold open access–that is, articles in 2017 in DOAJ-listed journals that don’t charge APCs?

I have an idea, and I’ll check it later today or some time tomorrow.

Meanwhile: candidates?


The Big Reveal

OK, so nobody much reads this stuff without prompting. No surprise there.

I had two obvious candidates, and I was half right.

In descending order, the publishers with the most 2017 articles in no-fee DOAJ-listed journals are:

Elsevier (14,919)
EDP Sciences (9,857)
De Gruyter Open (8,403)
Wolters Kluwer Medknow (6,329)
Springer (5,653–but add 744 for BioMed Central)
MDPI AG (5,653)

No others with 2,000 or more articles.
