Assessing the open access effect for hybrid journals
02 July 2018
OA articles in hybrid journals benefit from an impact advantage
Open access articles published in hybrid journals attract more downloads, citations, and attention compared to those published behind a paywall.
In partnership with Digital Science, we analysed a global sample of over 70,000 articles published in Springer Nature hybrid journals. Our new white paper, Assessing the open access effect for hybrid journals, examines the relationship between open access (OA) and impact, demonstrating the wider value hybrid journals bring to researchers, funders, institutions, and society more broadly.
