Articles published in open access journals like Biochemistry 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 Biochemistry 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.
Libertas Academica, and the open access model of Bioinformatics and Biology Insights helps to reach all people with the latest results on research which directly helps them and with their needs. Three of our co-authors are from Burkina Faso, the malaria holoendemic region our research is based on, and serving as motivation for all our efforts for better treatment of malaria. It is good to be social and it is good to promote science world-wide ...
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
