Articles published in open access journals like Particle Physics Insights have been shown to receive more citations that articles published in restricted access journals.
Libertas’ goal is to maximize visibility for all articles published in Particle Physics Insights. A recent review of previous research on open access citation levels showed that 87% of previous studies found open access articles were more often cited than restricted access articles.
The citation difference in favor of open access was notably pronounced in certain disciplines, with medicine having a 300-450% difference and agricultural sciences having a 200-600% difference.
This study demonstrates that publishing in open access journals means papers are more visible and more likely to be read and cited.
It is my pleasure to confirm that we had a very pleasant experience by publishing our article in Clinical Medicine Insights: Therapeutics. The review process was highly efficient and the reviewers' comments useful and constructive. I am sure that this is the kind of publication needed by the scientific community. I am looking forward future collaborations.
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
