Frequently asked questions
- Does open access bring more citations?
- Which journals are Open Access Journals?
- For which journals do I need the "Author annex"?
There are some analysis that seem to indicate that open access papers are more often cited than subscription-based articles (see e.g. The Scientist May 2006)
To find out whether a specific journal is an open access journal you may visit the EZB (Electronic Journal database) and search for the journal. Open Access Journals are marked with a green trafic light.
The author annex is needed for all journals which are neither Open Access Journals nor SHERPA/RoMEO green publishers (See Which journals are open access journals and The Sherpa/RoMEO list)
