Dear lists,

another by-product of my PhD project: Based on data from the Directory 
of Open Access Journals DOAJ I ​​examined to what extent open access 
journals in sociology charge their authors with publication fees. 
Surprisingly, the information of the DOAJ about the prevelance of these 
fees in journals from sociology were wrong to a large extent. A manual 
survey found that only three of the 109 selected journals used 
publication fees.
