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.
During February, Pubmed Central statistics showed that Libertas Academica has 1,259 papers available for anyone to download for free. These papers received 34,717 views, including 9,033 downloads.

Sun 16 Nov, 2014Interview with Mrs Alyssa Brooks
Clinical Medicine Insights: Cardiology is very much conscious of time. Every step is done thoroughly and rapidly. The reviewers' comments are constructive. There is regular contact with the authors, providing explanations where necessary. The visibility also enjoyed by one's article once it is published is worthy of note. Thanks for making publishing with you so easy and enjoyable.
