Alma Swan: The Open Access advantage

1,225

Published on

Almost thirty studies have now been carried out to verify whether or not there is a citation advantage from Open Access. These will be reviewed and some conclusions drawn as to whether Open Access does produce such an advantage and what its nature is. In addition, other advantages - for authors, institutions and nations - from Open Access will be presented and discussed.
