Hi everybody I'm about to persuade the National Psychological Association
(Ordine Nazionale degli Psicologi: don't know the right translation) to
insert an Open Access Journals list on their sites.

Then a question came out: How do we evaluate all these Open Access Journals?

While the usual Academic Journals are reviewed, how can we say whether an
Open Access journal is a good source or just trash?

How can we say researchers don't pay to publish their works, and other

Can we rely on the impact factor? How?

The provisory list is HERE:

And: what "APC" and "waivers" stand for?

Thank you!
