Today, OA publishing accounts for about half of all scholarly article output and much of the content in high-impact journals. It is no mystery why this is so. Researchers who win grant funding from organizations that require OA publishing are also the authors of impactful papers that become well cited. But this freely-available content is often hidden from those without subscription access to it.
