“We find a clear citation advantage for open publishing; on average, these documents received twice as many citations, indicating that open access is the future in publishing.”
"As found in the first study and replicated in the second study, the cited article was read by roughly twice as many participants in the free access citation condition as those in the normal and linked citation conditions ..... OA may lead to greater research diffusion not just in the research community but in the professional community as well."
"In ecology journals, OA articles showed significant citation advantages in each year from 2009 to 2013 (Fig. 1). Overall, OA articles received significantly more citations than non‐OA articles, and the citation advantage averaged approximately one citation per article per year and increased cumulatively over time after publication"
