There's a good lesson in this article (31 page PDF). The authors find that 192 open access journals disappeared between 2000 and 2019 (they would even know about them were it not for the work of Internet Archive and the Keepers, which preserved some but by no means all of the vanished journals). The missing journals are from all disciplines (with social sciences and humanities especially vulnerable) and from all geographic locations.
