Recent reports by the UK Parliament Committee on Science and Technology and the US House Appropriations Committee have recommended mandating that researchers provide Open Access (OA) to their research articles by self-archiving them free for all on the Web. OA is now firmly on the agenda for funding agencies, universities, libraries and publishers. What is needed now is objective, quantitative evidence of the benefits of OA to research authors, their institutions, their funders and to research itself. Web-based analysis of usage and citation patterns is providing this evidence.
