Articles published in open access journals like Biomedical Engineering and Computational Biology 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 Biomedical Engineering and Computational Biology. 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.

I very much enjoyed the experience of publishing with Substance Abuse: Research and Treatment. The editorial and review staff were very helpful and understanding throughout, even when a very large and complex project was being undertaken, and a range of subjects had to be reviewed. The editor was sympathetic and understanding of the author's responses, and this combined and coordinated interplay has allowed major conceptual advances to be made with major implications for the improvement ...
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
