While in its early stages, research on Internet-based survey methodology has identified a number of factors that influence data quality, several studies have found Internet surveys have significantly lower response rates than comparable mailed surveys.
A study of open access journals using article processing charges
This study studied the APCs charged and article volumes of journals that were listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals as charging APCs, finding that Professionally published journals had substantially higher APCs than journals published by societies, universities, or scholars/researchers.
The publishing delay in scholarly peer-reviewed journals
Open access versus subscription journals: a comparison of scientific impact
Comparisons with subscription journals indicate that OA journals indexed in Web of Science and/or Scopus are approaching the same scientific impact and quality as subscription journals, particularly in biomedicine and for journals funded by article processing charges.
Publication fees in open access publishing: Sources of funding and factors influencing choice of journal
Fit, quality, and speed of publication were the most important factors in the authors' choice of a journal and OA was less important but a significant factor for many authors in their choice ofA journal to publish.

Criteria for evaluating whether a registry is needed, feasible, or the most effective and efficient means of collecting a specific set of health data are presented and eight requirements are identified as crucial for the development of a new registry.
Article processing charges in OA journals: relationship between price and quality
A systematic survey of prices charged by Open Access journals indexed in Scopus revealed a moderate correlation between the APCs and Source Normalized Impact per Paper values, a measure of citation rates, which would seem to indicate that while publishers to some extent take the quality into account when pricing their journals, authors are even more sensitive to the relationship between price and quality in their choices of where to submit their manuscripts.

Pricing principles used by scholarly open access publishers
The pricing principles of 77 OA publishers publishing over 1,000 journals using APCs were studied and classified, finding that the country of origin of the author can also influence the pricing, in order to facilitate publishing for authors from developing countries.
