Citering av Open Access-publikationer

Elin Maria Wästlund


The paper seeks to perform an analysis of the current debate regarding citation of Open Access publications, based on scientific literature published during 2001-2010. The paper
takes the form of a critical reading of a range of published work on bibliometrics and open access as well as of various open access declarations. The analytical method chosen was the
hermeneutical method, to find out the different opinions and the basis for those. A publication that can be found in an open archive and is accessible via Open Access results in increased citation of the publication, as long as the quality of the publication is sufficient and that it is relevant for the subject. This paper is intended to highlight some of the views that exists regarding citation of Open Access publication
