The Impact Factor of Open Access Journals: Data and Trends [conference slides]

Posted by Celia Walter | 22 Jun, 2010
From an Abstract:

This work is aimed at testing the most trational bibliometric indicator, Impact Factor, and Open Access journals. It is focused mainly on the JCR Science edition, because of the largest coverage in OA journals (about 5%). OA journals rank in the top fifty percentiles with a 38,62% share. The research is to be continued on the incoming JCR 2010 edition.
