Bibliometrics: global gender disparities in science.
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.
Ten-Year Cross-Disciplinary Comparison of the Growth of Open Access and How it Increases Research Citation Impact
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).
The Access/Impact Problem and the Green and Gold Roads to Open Access: An Update
To reach 100% OA, self-archiving needs to be mandated by researchers' employers and funders, as the UK and US have recently recommended, and universities need to implement that mandate.

There is a 20 to 25% overrepresentation of English-language journals in Thomson Scientific's databases compared to the list of journals presented in Ulrich, which means Thomson Scientific databases cannot be used in isolation to benchmark the output of countries in the SSH.

Using macrolevel bibliometric indicators to compare results obtained from the WoS and Scopus provides evidence that indicators of scientific production and citations at the country level are stable and largely independent of the database.
Green and Gold Open Access Percentages and Growth, by Discipline
Green OA exceeds Gold OA in proportion and growth rate in all but the biomedical disciplines, probably because it can be provided for all journals articles and does not require paying extra Gold O a publication fees.
On the relationship between interdisciplinarity and scientific impact
There might be an optimum of interdisciplinarity beyond which the research is too dispersed to find its niche and under which it is too mainstream to have high impact, according to this analysis of individual papers published in Web of Science in 2000.

Using the entire population of professors at universities in the province of Quebec (Canada), the article shows that, after they have passed the age of about 38, women receive, on average, less funding for research than men, are generally less productive in terms of publications, and are at a slight disadvantage in Terms of the scientific impact of their publications.
Long-term variations in the aging of scientific literature: From exponential growth to steady-state science (1900-2004)
The major finding of this article is that contrary to a widely held belief, the age of cited material has risen continuously since the mid1960s, and it is suggested that this phenomenon is a direct response to the steady-state dynamics of modern science that followed its exponential growth.
