Open Access Publishing

Posted by Ed on June 28, 2004

BioMed Central has issued a press release about the success of Open Access journals in recently anounced Impact Factors.

Open Access journals published by BioMed Central have received impact factors that compare well with equivalent subscription titles, it was announced today. The high impact factors, all for journals that are just a few years old, prove that Open Access to research literature achieves impact fast and makes quality articles much more widely visible.

Actually I’m not sure if it does prove that, but it’s good news nonetheless.

Arthritis Research & Therapy, Breast Cancer Research, and Respiratory Research did particularly well.
