Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) er búið að birta lista yfir skilyrði sem OA rit þurfa að uppfylla til að vera tekin inn í DOAJ skrána.

Þetta er hluti af átaki til að taka á vandamálum tengdum “rányrkjuritum” (e. predatory OA journals) með s.k. “hvítum” listum. Frekar en að hafa “svarta” lista yfir “ljótu kallana” (sbr. hinn umdeildi listi Bealls) þá er hugmyndin hér að hafa lista yfir “góðu kallana” (þ.e. fræðiútgefendur/rit sem eru talin í lagi, skv. ákveðnum viðmiðum) sem höfundar og aðrir geta flett upp í.
