  The list is a remarkable piece of work. It is unfortunate that
  you seem to missread their data. When the award the green mark,
  it means that the journal comes "with freely available fulltext articles".
  It does not mean "open access".

  I checked this out for the Wirtschaftswoche, marked green for, a
  German Economics magazine and by no intents and purposes
  a scholarly journal. Some contents are short full texts,
  others are summaries of articles in the magazine, and
  some are short news items. But this is by no means
  the full contents of the magazine, I should think.
