Here we investigate the impact of free online availability by analysing citation rates. Online availability of an article may not greatly improve access and impact without efficient and comprehensive search services; a substantial percentage of the literature needs to be indexed by these search services before scientists consider them useful. In computer science, a substantial percentage of the literature is online and available through search engines such as Google , or specialized services… 

Maximize Visibility: A Way to Increase Citation Frequency

TLDR
Some of the key points of the module for improving the citation counts are reported, which are developing a module for increasing the visibility of the research which directly influences the number of citations.

Bibliometric Evaluation of Researchers in the Internet

TLDR
This contribution highlights two concerns that the research community needs to pay attention to, one, in the world of search engine facilitated research, factors such as ease of Web discovery, ease of access, and content relevance, rather than quality, influence what gets read and cited.

Bibliometric Evaluation of Researchers in the Internet Age

TLDR
This contribution highlights two concerns that the research community needs to pay attention to, one, in the world of search engine facilitated research, factors such as ease of Web discovery, ease of access, and content relevance, rather than quality, influence what gets read and cited.

Open Access and Global Participation in Science

TLDR
It is demonstrated that a journal receives a modest increase in citations when it comes online freely, but the jump is larger when it first comes online through commercial sources, suggesting that free Internet access widens the circle of those who read and make use of scientists' investigations.

Do Open-Access Articles Have a Greater Research Impact?

Although many authors believe that their work has a greater research impact if it is freely available, studies to demonstrate that impact are few. This study looks at articles in four disciplines at

Multiple open access availability and citation impact

TLDR
A correlation between the two variables is discovered; namely, multiple OA availability of an article has a positive impact on its citation count.

Multiple open access availability and citation impact

This research examines the relationship between multiple open access (OA) availability of journal articles and the citation advantage by collecting data of OA copies and citation numbers in 20 top

The Impact of Search Engine Optimization on The Visibility of Research Paper and Citations

TLDR
The impact of search engine optimization techniques that can improve the visibility of a research paper are analysed and some strategies that can help and making the research publication visible to a large number of users are proposed.

Scientific citations in Wikipedia

TLDR
Results show an increasing use of structured citation markup and good agreement with citation patterns seen in the scientific literature though with a slight tendency to cite articles in high-impact journals such as Nature and Science, which increases confidence in Wikipedia as a reliable information resource for science in general.

How accessibility influences citation counts: The case of citations to the full text articles available from ResearchGate

TLDR
It is shown that there is always a significant positive correlation between full text availability and the citation count, and both post-print version and publisher’s version of the archived manuscripts of the accepted manuscripts receive more citations than non-OA articles.
