Yes, this is a good idea. Thanks Mathieu!

Although interestingly, I wonder how many OA media journals there are.
There are, as we know, some digital, networked etc media OA journals ...
But a lot of heritage media, for want of a better term, has stayed behind
the paywall. Part of a general and increasingly anachronistc divide in
working in media studies? I would lve to be corrected on all this.
Meanwhile some of the OA journals that do exist are listed on the
fibreculture site.

A fuller list we could publicise would very helpful in all kinds of ways.
