Izvleček:

Odprti dostop je v svetu že uveljavljena pot objavljanja rezultatov znanstvenoraziskovalnega dela. Opravljenih je mnogo raziskav, v katerih ugotavljajo, ali so odprto dostopne objave brane in citirane večkrat kot objave, ki niso odprto ali prosto dostopne. V raziskavi smo pripravili pregled in analizo bibliometrijskih študij, s katerimi so analizirali vplive na obseg in hitrost citiranja, s posebnim poudarkom na vplivu odprtega dostopa in ločeno za posamezne znanstvene discipline. Izpostavili smo tudi nekaj drugih dejavnikov, ki vplivajo predvsem na večjo vidnost objav in posledično na njihovo večjo citiranost. Ugotovili smo, da bo v prihodnosti treba poenotiti metodologije proučevanja vplivov odprtega dostopa na citiranost, preden bomo lahko povsem potrdili ali ovrgli hipotezo o pozitivni korelaciji med številom citatov in odprtim dostopom.

Ključne besede: odprti dostop, vidnost objav, citiranost, vplivi na citiranost, pregled objav

 

Abstract:

Open access is a well-established way of publishing research results. There are many studies investigating the influence of open access on visibility of articles and citation counts. In this study, an overview and analysis of bibliometric studies analysing the extent and speed of citation were prepared, with special emphasis on the impact of open access, separately for certain scientific disciplines. We also highlight other factors that mainly affect the increased visibility and, consequently, the increase of the total citation count. We found that in the future it will be necessary to standardize the methodology of studying the effects of open access on citations, before the hypothesis of a positive correlation between the number of citations and open access can be fully confirmed or refuted.

Keywords: open access, visibility, citation count, the impact on the citations, publication review
