The phenomenon of open access research has led to studies evaluating the growth and making comparisons to subscription based research studies.  Laakso and Polonioli (2018) compare and evaluate the development of open access to subscription access journals.  Smith et al. (2017) make a similar comparison in global health research.





Laakso, M., & Polonioli, A. (2018). Open access in ethics research: an analysis of open access availability and author self-archiving behaviour in light of journal copyright restrictions. Scientometrics, 116(1), 291-317. doi:10.1007/s11192-018-2751-5

Smith, E., Haustein, S., Mongeon, P., Shu, F., Ridde, V., & Larivière, V. (2017). Knowledge sharing in global health research – the impact, uptake and cost of open access to scholarly literature. Health Research Policy and Systems, 15(1), 73. doi:10.1186/s12961-017-0235-3
