Friends and implementers of open access around the world: we have  
outdone ourselves (again!). This quarter a number of initiatives have  
met or exceeded some interesting milestones. DOAJ is now over 7,000  
journals, and still adding more than 4 titles per day. The Electronic  
Journals Library now lists more than 30,000 titles that are freely  
available. OpenDOAR now lists more than 2,000 repositories, and the   BASE
search engine searches more than 31 million documents in
repositories. ROARMAP now lists a total of 300 open access mandate  
policies. Kudos to PMC for clearly posting pertinent data right on   their
website, and for growing the number of journals making all   articles
available OA by 19 to a new total of 635 - and for growing   free fulltext
at the rate of one per minute! Following are links to   quick reference
and full data versions, rationale and method, items of   interest from
this quarter, and noteworthy data from this quarter.

DOAJ # of journals:  7,070
Electronic Journals Library - # of free journals: 30, 963
OpenDOAR: 2,085 repositories
Bielefeld Academic Search Engine - metadata for 31 million items in  
2,027 repositories
PubMedCentral: 2.2 million articles, 1,214 journals actively
