New Open Access Visibility Information for Immunotherapy Insights

Articles published in open access journals like Immunotherapy Insights have been shown to receive more citations that articles published in restricted access journals.

Libertas’ goal is to maximize visibility for all articles published in Immunotherapy Insights. A recent review of previous research on open access citation levels showed that 87% of previous studies found open access were more often cited than restricted access articles.

The citation difference in favor of open access was notably pronounced in certain disciplines, with medicine having a 300-450% difference and agricultural sciences having a 200-600% difference.

This study demonstrates that publishing in open access journals means papers are more visible and more likely to be read and cited.
