Abstract/Description: This article presents an analysis of 111 journals in Library and Information Science based on measurements of "openness" including copyright policies, open access self-archiving policies and open access publishing options. We propose a new metric to rank journals: the J.O.I Factor (Journal Openness Index). Finally, the article calls for librarians and researchers in LIS to examine our scholarly literature and hold it to the principles and standards that we are asking of other disciplines.
