How is quality defined?

The quality of the journals is a major consideration (>20% of respondents). What makes a journal, including the sample journals, a quality journal?

I don't think "quality of the journal" makes sense for mega-journals, because they are functionally repositories for papers. There is (often) no editorial policy, or orientation of the journal towards specific topics.

Paul, it was defined by the respondents. They were simply asked how important quality was in their decision to publish in the journal. I think most researchers have a sense of the quality of the journals in their field.
