I am wondering about the following (after reading this question that discusses open access journals):
- Is it easier to publish in one of the open access journals (when compared to the traditional journals)?
- Does publishing in one of the open access journals affect the academic value of an article? (Unsure how to put this, but I mean does it affect your reputation etc?)
I note that some of the open access journals are peer-reviewed.
An example of open access is the Directory of Open Access Journals.
