  • Society publishers with open access journals
    • By Caroline Sutton, Peter Suber, and Amanda Page.
    • The latest edition of the catalog is the third edition, released September 16, 2013.
    • The catalog is a Google Spreadsheet under a CC-BY license.
    • Originally the spreadsheet was open for public editing. Unfortunately vandalism forced us to close public editing in April 2013, although the spreadsheet remains OA under CC-BY for reading and reuse. We'll re-open it for public editing when we think it's safe to do so. In the meantime, we continue to update the spreadsheet ourselves. If you have additions or corrections, please send them to Amanda Page.

  • Editions of the catalog
    • Caroline Sutton and Peter Suber released the first edition of the catalog in September 2007. At that time, the catalog was a downloadable Excel spreadsheet under a CC-BY license. It's still available, though superseded. Caroline and Peter also wrote an article to accompany the catalog, Society publishers with open access journals, SPARC Open Access Newsletter, November 2, 2007.
    • Caroline and Peter released the second edition on December 2, 2011. The second edition is the same Google spreadsheet as the third and current edition. Peter wrote an article to accompany the second edition, Open access journals from society publishers, SPARC Open Access Newsletter, December 2, 2011.
    • The second edition was open to public edits, and continuously updated. For those reasons, we didn't plan to release a third edition. But we did so in September 2013 in order to add Amanda Page as a co-author, in recognition of her work enlarging and improving the catalog.
