Articles published in open access journals like Clinical Medicine Insights: Oncology have been shown to receive more citations than articles published in restricted access journals.
A recent review of the studies on open access citation advantage found that 87% of previous research showed open access articles to be more often cited than restricted access articles. An article’s citation level gives a good indication of its visibility and impact, and in some subject areas open access papers received 600% more citations than restricted access papers.
The mean difference in citations was 176.75% in favour of open access, meaning papers published in open access journal almost always get a considerable citation advantage over those published in restricted access journals.

I found the submission management system for Evolutionary Bioinformatics to be one of the most user-friendly around. The peer review was very rigorous and constructive. Support staff were polite and furnished accurate information almost instantly. I strongly recommend other scientists to consider this journal.
