[#OAW15SF in Video] The Open Access Citation Advantage: Is There a Real Effect?

Either way, William Gunn of Mendeley will have you know that citations are not the only thing that matters.

One motivation to publish in open access is that, by making your work available to more readers, it is said, you’ll also increase your citations. Is it true? Mendeley's William Gunn takes a look at some of the data, but would also like to remind you that there’s more to life than being cited. “You have a much greater impact on the world at large by the research that you do than just on the people who are reading and citing your papers,” he says. And research funders know it, too.
