Barriers to accessing scientific findings contribute to knowledge inequalities based on financial resources and decrease the transparency and rigor of scientific research. Recent initiatives aim to improve access to research as well as methodological rigor via transparency and openness. We sought to determine the impact of such initiatives on open access publishing in the sub-area of human electrophysiology and the impact of open access on the attention articles received in the scholarly…

Data quality and reliability metrics for event-related potentials (ERPs): The utility of subject-level reliability.
This primer applies each metric to published error-related negativity (ERN) and reward positivity (RewP) data and demonstrates how failing to consider data quality and internal consistency can undermine statistical inferences.


Open Access Publishing and Subsequent Citations Among Articles in Major Cardiovascular Journals.
Among contemporary articles published in major cardiovascular journals, open access publishing accounted for over 40% of articles and was significantly associated with increased short-term citations.
The Impact of Open Access Status on Journal Indexes of Radiology Journals.
It is found that the trend toward OA publishing in the fields of radiology and nuclear medicine has slowed in recent years, although the percent cited is higher for OA journals.
Open access publishing, article downloads, and citations: randomised controlled trial
No evidence was found of a citation advantage for open access articles in the first year after publication, suggesting the citation advantage from open access reported widely in the literature may be an artefact of other causes.
The impact of the open-access status on journal indices: a review of medical journals
Among medical journals, although non-OA journals still have higher output in terms of articles per year, OA journals have higher citation metrics and other indices.
Predatory publishing or a lack of peer review transparency?-a contemporary analysis of indexed open and non-open access articles in paediatric urology.
A time-stable prevalence is identified of 6.5% open access publications that could meet proposed criteria for a 'borderline/predatory journal'; however, this should not influence the decision to publish in open access journals.
Profile of Data Sharing in the Clinical Neurosciences
The results demonstrate an opportunity for increased data sharing in neuroscience original research and suggest a trend towards increased adoption of open data sharing policies among journals and increased availability of unprocessed data in publications.
The impact factor of an open access journal does not contribute to an article’s citations
It may not be worth paying high publishing fees for higher IF journals, because there is minimal gain in terms of increased number of citations, but if one wishes to publish in a non-OA journal, it is better to choose one with a high IF.
The state of OA: a large-scale analysis of the prevalence and impact of Open Access articles
The citation impact of OA articles is examined, corroborating the so-called open-access citation advantage: accounting for age and discipline, OAarticles receive 18% more citations than average, an effect driven primarily by Green and Hybrid OA.
The impact of the open-access status on journal indices: oncology journals.
Publishing in oncology OA journals will yield more impact, in term of citations, and will reach boarder audience, and the impact of the open-access status on journal indices will be higher.
Scientific impact increases when researchers publish in open access and international collaboration: A bibliometric analysis on poverty-related disease papers
There is a real, measurable citation advantage for publishing PRD research in OA and international collaboration, however, the international collaboration advantage seems to be region-specific with increased research impact for European-wide and European-sub-Saharan African collaborations but a decrease in research impact of collaborations confined to sub-Saharan Africa research institutions.
