Full disclosure: I am an associate editor of this journal, so I may have some bias, however in the open access push by the ERC, the publiseringsindikator needs to include open access options. While there are many predatory "scam journals" out there, Frontiers is definitely not one of them.

Frontiers in Earth Science recently received a Web of Science impact factor of 2.892 (2018 Journal Citation Reports, Web of Science Group, 2019). The journal received 590 citations in 2018 to 204 citable items published in 2016 and 2017. The journal’s ranking in the Geosciences (multidisciplinary) category now stands at 54/196, which is an excellent achievement for a new journal.

The publiseringsindikator needs to elevate some of the top open access publishers including Frontiers and MDPI to Tier 2 so that Norwegian researchers will be encouraged to publish in the open access formats. As an editor, I can assure you that the peer review process is taken highly seriously and all manuscripts are treated with rigor. All manuscripts receive multiple levels of peer review and editorial curation prior to publication. In my experience, more manuscripts are rejected than accepted on the basis that they do not meet the high standards of the journal.
