Articles published in open access journals like Clinical Medicine Insights: Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Disorders 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 would like to say that this is the most author-friendly editing process I have experienced. The publishing process of this journal was a most pleasant and productive experience, and it was fast and convenient to me.
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
