Benefit of Open Access

The chief benefit of publishing in an open access format is that papers are freely accessible to the public, allowing wide dissemination of research.

This point was confirmed by Gunther Eysenbach of the University of Toronto in a 2006 paper published in PLoS Biology, an open access journal. Analyzing citations in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences from June-December 2004, Eysenbach found "open access articles are more immediately recognized and cited by peers than non-open access articles published in the same journal." He suggested that "open access is likely to benefit science by accelerating dissemination and uptake of research findings." [Eysenbach G (2006) Citation Advantage of Open Access Articles. PLoS Biol 4(5): e157 doi:10.1371/journal.pbio.0040157]
