Abstract: The complexity about the Open Access (OA) debate is due to the multifaceted dimensions affecting it: economic, technological, academic, political, ethical, and legal. The economic dimension is the most frequently tackle because is in the very source of the OA concept. The rising of subscription prices for scholarly journals, coupled with the declining budgets in libraries, show the necessity of new methods for accessing journal literature. The present work differs from others because is not focused on individual publications, but in the types of journals according to their OA policies where the authors publish. The aim is to evaluate the feasibility of the various publication models. In other words, to analyse the consequences that the type of journal chosen has for the scientific results, independently of the type of access, open or not, of the individual work. In this regard, we present the global evolution of those journal choices, and the broke down by disciplines and countries.
