Updated list of highly cited open-access journals

Yesterday the National Contact Point Open Access OA2020-DE (Germany) published an updated list of of frequently cited open-access journals.

The list comprises 800 Open Access journals; it is based on data from the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) that is enriched with SNIP-Scores (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). SNIP relies on citation information from Scopus and measures contextual citation impact: It weights citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field and therefore balances differences in citation practices between scientific fields.
