Self-Selected or Mandated, Open Access Increases Citation Impact for Higher Quality Research
The OA advantage is greater for the more citable articles, not because of a quality bias from authors self-selecting what to make OA, but because ofA quality advantage, from users self- selecting what to use and cite, freed by OA from the constraints of selective accessibility to subscribers only.
The Access/Impact Problem and the Green and Gold Roads to Open Access: An Update
