As Open Access Explodes, How to Tell The Good From the Bad and the Ugly?

Author Martin Enserrink has written an interesting article in Science about the challenges of determining reputable open access (OA) journals in which to submit a research manuscript for publication. Topics include the debut of an online registry called the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), the difficulty in gauging the quality of OA journals, and the increasing diversity of the OA industry, which includes some of the world's most prolific publishers, such as Springer.

Definitely worth a read.
