Abstract
Persuading students and faculty to take the effort to make their work Open Access can be challenging. One way to help convince them is to show that not only is Open Access better for their readers, but it’s also better for them directly. Our bibliometric study showed that Open Access articles in institutional repositories like UH Manoa’s ScholarSpace receive about 30% more citations than pay articles in the same journal and their citations are about 19% more interdisciplinary. We discuss how this result can help libraries market and sustain their services, and the implications for Open Access.
