Introducing new open access data in Journal Citation Reports - Web of Science Group https://t.co/hBZurjmTd5— Jill ONeill (@jillmwo) April 23, 2020
From the referenced page:
Funders, librarians and publishers are looking to improve transparency of open access, with publishers under increasing pressure to eliminate or shorten embargoes, improve open access options and to ‘flip’ traditional subscription or hybrid journals to make all research articles freely accessible and reusable upon publication via a Creative Commons license – usually referred to as gold OA.
To help the research community navigate through this complex transition, we have added open access data to Journal Citation Reports (JCR) profile pages to increase transparency around how much of the scholarly literature is published using the gold OA model, and how much of this content is being cited. This will help the research community better understand the contribution of gold OA content to the literature and its influence on scholarly discourse.
