There are many scholarly journals worldwide; while some of them follow standard publication practice and some are not. Therefore evolved journal indexing services which provide authentic and in some cases automatic reports of these journals. It is very rare to find out a suitable journal directory (obviously there are many site directory but they enlist all kind of websites). Directory of Open Access Journal (DOAJ) is an unique and excellent indexing platform where researcher can find and compare Open Access journals search and filter them using keywords and taxonomy. Indexing in DOAJ is prestigious and consider as authentic source for Open Access Journals. Despite of these services which are mostly paid and difficult to affort fees for journals run by non-profit organizations, mostly present in third world country. Also none of them have the facility to compare journals side by side (whether its processing charges or related discipline). It would not be wrong to say that expensive membership packages and indexing charges made it nearly impossible to run a quality journal in the developing countries. Not only indexing services but also highly reputed journals have set their processing charge such that either it is possible to pay by only first class citizen of the first world country or very rich researcher. For example article-processing charge of BMC Biology is £1585/$2700/€2005 for each article accepted for publication (Ref1), DOAJ charge £1000 per year for a large size journal(Ref2) and CrossRef charge up to $50,000 per year for a publishers to become its member(Ref3).
