Are Open Access publications high quality?
There are high quality Open Access publications and low quality Open Access publications, just as with subscription publications. Just because a publication uses an Open Access model, it does NOT mean it is of lower quality than a subscription one. Think of it this way, the journal has to collect money to pay its own bills somehow; Open Access and Subscription just differ in how they do it!
Regardless of the publication model, you should always evaluate a journal for quality.
