Harnad:Open access citation rates and developing countries
|subject||Open access citation rates and developing countries|
|message||The authors' prediction (partially supported by the data) was that citations (in mathematics) from authors in developing countries should be higher to OA articles than are citations from authors in developed countries.
Interesting study, but is this prediction perhaps to simple? There are plenty of have-nots in developed countries, seeking access and citations too.
What were the year-spns involved? Were the OA/non-OA comparisons ratios within the same-journal/year or just global averages across years and journals?
