The current gold standard for accessing lists of open access journals is the DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals), which lists only peer reviewed journals. Another list, which was just recently posted by Peter Suber on behalf of Jan Szczepanski, a librarian at Sweden's Goteborg University, is larger, in part because "because the DOAJ is working through a backlog, in part because Jan has focused especially on the humanities, and in part because Jan is willing to list journals that are not peer reviewed." From Peter Suber, on behalf of Jan Szczepanski:
Current OA journals (A large Word file, 3.48 MB.)
Historic or retrodigitized OA journals (An Excel spreadsheet, 315 KB.)
Update. Many users had trouble with the large DOC file of current OA journals. In response, I've made an HTML version of the file.
