Comparing the Impact of Open Access (OA) vs. Non-OA Articles in the Same Journals

Harnad, Stevan and Brody, Tim (2004) Comparing the Impact of Open Access (OA) vs. Non-OA Articles in the Same Journals D-Lib Magazine, 10, (6)

Record type: Article


The way to test the impact advantage of Open Access (OA) is not to compare the citation impact factors of OA and non-OA journals but to compare the citation counts of individual OA and non-OA articles appearing in the same (non-OA) journals. Such ongoing comparisons are revealing dramatic citation advantages for OA.
