  20. 20. Manuscript Matcher Tool • Finding Citations to Social Work Literature: The Relative Benefits of Using Web of Science, Scopus, or Google Scholar • Past studies of citation coverage of Web of Science, Scopus, and Google Scholar do not demonstrate a consistent pattern that can be applied to the interdisciplinary mix of resources used in social work research. To determine the utility of these tools to social work researchers, an analysis of citing references to well-known social work journals was conducted. Web of Science had the fewest citing references and almost no variety in source format. Scopus provided higher citation counts, but the pattern of coverage was similar to Web of Science. Google Scholar provided substantially more citing references, but only a relatively small percentage of them were unique scholarly journal articles. The patterns of database coverage were replicated when the citations were broken out for each journal separately. The results of this analysis demonstrate the need to determine what resources constitute scholarly research and reflect the need for future researchers to consider the merits of each database before undertaking their research. This study will be of interest to scholars in library and information science as well as social work, as it facilitates a greater understanding of the strengths and limitations of each database and brings to light important considerations for conducting future research. • Web of science endnote http://library.albany.edu

  22. 22. OA Journal Models http://researchguides.library.vanderbilt.edu/c.php?g=144567&p=946137ck Green OA Traditional Open Access Journals • Journals established by digital commercial or nonprofit publishers for the sole purpose of publishing open access content • Typically utilize a Creative Commons Attribution License for publishing • Authors usually retain their copyright. • Different funding strategies used to support the journal: • Advertising • Membership fees • Author fees (money may come from the author or more likely the author's research grant) • Can be waived in cases of financial hardship • Subsidies from institutions such as universities, laboratories, research centers, libraries, foundations, museums or government agencies Hybrid Open Access Journals • Journals where only some of the articles are open access • Open access status requires the payment of a publication fee/ processing fee to the publisher • Definition of open access may vary according to publisher Delayed Open Access Journals Delayed Open Access Journals • Traditional subscription-based journal • Provide open access or free access after the elapse of an embargo period following the initial date of publication • Embargo periods vary from a few months to two or more years • Journal subscription or individual article purchase required to view articles prior to the end of the embargo period • Model adopted by many scholarly society journals
