OPEN ACCESS JOURNALS - Directories and Databases

Many commercial publishers will charge authors a fee to publish under open access in their journals.  Some of these are:  Cambridge University Press, De Gruyter, IEEE, Nature, Oxford University Press, Sage Publishing, Springer, Taylor & Francis, Wiley-Blackwell.  Other publishers allow articles to become open access after an embargo period.
