Abstract
<p>On the eleventh of June 2014 the Directory of Open Access Journals DOAJ listed&nbsp;109 sociology journals.&nbsp; For these journals the information on publication charges was wrong in more than 10 % of the cases. Focusing on the eleven journals that - according to the DOAJ - used (always or conditionally) APCs the situation is even worse: &nbsp;10 of these journals (90,9 %) were categorized wrongly.</p> <p>In fact only three out of these 109 journals (2,75 %) are charging their authors. The files contain corrected information for the 109 journals including the sums charged by the journals.</p>
