Self-Selected or Mandated, Open Access Increases Citation Impact for Higher Quality Research
TLDR
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.
Comparing the Impact of Open Access (OA) vs. Non-OA Articles in the Same Journals
TLDR
Comparing the citation counts of individual OA and non-OA articles appearing in the same (non-OA) journals is revealing dramatic citation advantages for OA.
Ten-Year Cross-Disciplinary Comparison of the Growth of Open Access and How it Increases Research Citation Impact
TLDR
A robot is designed that trawls the Web for full-texts using reference metadata and citation data from the Institute for Scientific Information database and it is unlikely that the OA citation advantage is merely or mostly a self-selection bias (for making only one's better articles OA).
Earlier Web Usage Statistics as Predictors of Later Citation Impact
TLDR
This paper analyses how short-term Web usage impact predicts medium-term citation impact and uses the physics e-print archive -- arXiv.org -- to test this.
