Open-Access Journals for Music and the Digital Humanities
Why Open Access to Research and Scholarship?
Difficult questions need to be asked, and innovative approaches need to be explored and tested, because the immediate and long-term benefits of open access are consistent with the very goals of scholarly work. To begin with the simplest of points, made across a growing number of studies, open access leads to a work being cited more often and more quickly (Hitchcock, 2006). That is, work that is made freely accessible makes a greater contribution to research literature. Improved levels of citation, from a society’s perspective, also happen to raise the impact factor of a journal. However, the citational advantages of open access represent a limited-term offer that will gradually disappear, of course, as open access becomes more widespread. Thus, it is important to see that something larger and more fundamental is at stake. – John Willinsky
