Dear Sara Kjellberg,

My view is that DOAJ engaging in definition polishing is premature. Your
service is valued and appreciated by great number of academic libraries
web sites (that I noticed personally), and is used by some services to
libraries (like Serials solutions).

Those who use your service seem accepted your definition of Open Access,
so, I do not see the point to modify (and especially adapt your definition
of OA to major players of Open Access movement), when the whole concept
is just developing. Please make a note of it.

To remind all my view on the publication fee in OA is available at the
following SPARC-OA Forum posts:
