OA journal statistics by country

The DOAJ has added a page of statistics by country.  For each of 90 countries, you can quickly see how many OA journals it had in the DOAJ in any of the past seven years (for example, Japan in 2004 = 72) and how many it added that year (Japan in 2004 = 47). 

Each number links to a list.  For example, here's the list of 47 Japanese OA journals added to the DOAJ during 2004. 

PS:  This will be very useful for tracking the growth of OA journals over time and their spread to different countries.
