Open Access, downloads (‘hits’) & citation impact: a bibliography

The Open Citation Project (Opcit) maintains a bibliography on the effects of downloads on citation impacts. The general assumption is that papers which are distributed in open archives before final publishing as articles in journals, have a positive effect on the amount of citations (Times Cited) for the final article when published in a journal. This bibliography is very useful because it puts together the most relevant and new papers and reports on the topic. I have put a a spy on that site to make sure I stay in touch with this bibiography.
