Title: Author-choice open-access publishing in the biological and medical literature: A citation analysis
Authors: Davis, Philip M.
Keywords: open access
author choice
citation analysis

Issue Date: Jan-2009
Publisher: Wiley
Citation: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology v.60 n.1 p.3-8
Abstract: In this article, we analyze the citations to articles published in 11 biological and medical journals from 2003 to 2007 that employ author-choice open-access models. Controlling for known explanatory predictors of citations, only 2 of the 11 journals show positive and significant open-access effects. Analyzing all journals together, we report a small but significant increase in article citations of 17%. In addition, there is strong evidence to suggest that the open-access advantage is declining by about 7% per year, from 32% in 2004 to 11% in 2007.
