DOAJ provides a list of trusted, open access scholarly journals (11 544) from across the world, and from different disciplines. Journal Editors are encouraged to submit their journals for evaluation, and researchers and librarians are encouraged to use this list as a valuable resource to identify journals to publish with, but also to find information from to advance further research.
It is easy to see exactly which journals are from which country, from which discipline, at any time, by downloading it in Excel from the following:

Use the functions in Excel to sort data/clean as you wish, and more. OpenRefine also an option to clean/manipulate data.
Please encourage scholarly publication journals – especially from Africa – to consider applying for evaluation and inclusion.
The Directory of Open Access Journals was launched in 2003 at Lund University, Sweden, with 300 open access journals and today contains ca. 10000 open access journals covering all areas of science, technology, medicine, social science and humanities.
