-fully right, Richard and Amy
-"open-access" is only a way of publishing but with its own peculiar advantages/problems
-what we need is not only a list of this kind about open-access journals, but about any journal and even any institution (there are many named as "institute" or "foundation" that are purely commercial)

A very useful site Juan.
I would not say, however, that the worry is open access.  The worry is illegitimate unscrupulous and/or predatory journals, which of course could be paper or online, open or closed access etc.
Best,
Rich

Be careful. Potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access publishers.
