<meta name="DC.description.abstract" content="ABSTRACT:Introduction. The research exposes the case of academic journals of open access communication in Mexico, their background, current status, challenges and vicissitudes. It also distinguishes the number of undergraduate and graduate degrees in communication in the country with the idea of ​​reflecting and relating the information to the total of existing journals. Methodology: Descriptive, the work is based on the review of open access academic publications that deal with communication issues. It identifies the characteristics of the adjective "academic", examines their visibility through indexing to databases, access formats, use of the Open Journal Systems (ojs), inclusion of the digital object identifier (doi), use of antiplagiarism programs, adherence to the Committee on Publication Ethics (Cope), use of Creative Commons licenses, and registration of citing in Google Scholar, various access formats, among others. Results and discussion: In two tables, the current status of open access communication journals in Mexico recognizes that existing publications are insufficient; that, in parallel, they coexist with their printed version, and that the electronic version is lagging behind technological advances and international standardization processes that leaves them out of the interest of some of the national authors to publish in them. It also recognizes the existence of journals endorsed by educational institutions, which do not have precisely the interest of being indexed to national and international databases, since their inbred/institutional role allows them to be appropriately a learning platform for the training of academics who for the first time experience the art of publishing"/>
