Articles published in open access journals like Translational Oncogenomics 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 serve as a peer reviewer for Libertas Academica and I would say LA is a great publisher to work with. The online review system is easy to navigate and the review process is straightforward. I am really looking forward to reviewing more manuscripts and submitting my own results as well in the future.
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
