  • No data are currently available on open access (OA) publication cost and academic impact in infectious diseases (ID).
  • Evaluating 255 ID journals, the median cost of full OA journals was lower than that of hybrid journals (2000$ vs 3550$).
  • Full OA journals had lower citation numbers, immediacy index, influence score, and Eigenfactor.
  • In ID, considerable costs are required for OA publication, limiting the ability of researchers to share their data.
  • Trying to lower the cost by choosing full OA journal is associated with measures entailing lower quality."
