Do Open-Access Articles Have a Greater Research Impact?

  • “This study looks at articles in four disciplines at varying stages of adoption
    of open access – philosophy, political science, electrical and electronic engineering and mathematics – to see whether they have a greater impact as measured by citations in the ISI Web of Science database when their authors make them freely available on the Internet. The finding is that, across all four disciplines, freely available articles do have a greater research impact.” [Library Link of the Day]
