*OA pharma journals cited more than non-OA pharma journals*


Kevin A. Clauson and three co-authors, Open-access publishing for

pharmacy-focused journals, American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy,

August 15, 2008.


Only this abstract is free online, at least so far:


Purpose. Pharmacy-focused journals that are available in open-access (OA),

freely accessible, hybrid, or traditional formats were identified.


Methods. Relevant journals were accessed from PubMed, International

Pharmaceutical Abstracts, EMBASE, and the Pharmacology and Pharmacy

category of Thomson Scientific Journal Citation Reports. Criteria were

established to select journals that satisfied the definition of pharmacy

focused. Journals were assessed based on accessibility, copyright transfer

requirements, and restrictions. If tracked, the journal’s impact factor

(IF) was identified according to classification, and medians were

calculated for each journal category.


Results. A total of 317 pharmacy-focused journals were identified. The

majority of pharmacy-focused journals identified were traditional/non-OA

(n = 240). A smaller number of journals were freely accessible/ non-OA (n

= 37), freely accessible/non-OA with content restrictions (n = 20), or

freely available/non-OA with date restrictions (n = 18). The fewest number

of journals were completely OA (n = 2). The median IF for the 185 journals

whose IF was tracked was 2.029. The median IF for freely accessible and

hybrid journals (n = 42) was 2.550, whereas the median IF for traditional

journals (n = 143) was 1.900.


Conclusion. A very small number of pharmacy-focused journals adhere to the

OA paradigm of access. However, journals that adopt some elements of the

OA model, chiefly free accessibility, may be more likely to be cited than

traditional journals. Pharmacy practitioners, educators, and researchers

could benefit from the advantages that OA offers but should understand its

financial disadvantages.
