"If you post your paper online somewhere outside a paywall, you join the majority of scholars and your paper will gain a citation advantage over papers available only through a journal. This has been demonstrated in recent research. A particular focus of research on open access publishing has been the hypothesis that open access papers will be more highly cited. In this post I will examine some studies that have attempted to confirm or quantify this citation advantage."
