*The paradox is therefore that the students at an institution that can most
benefit from OA, and complain about lack of access, don’t appear to want to
publish in OA journals because 1) of a lack of perceived value or impact 2)
of a lack of resources to support the article or 3) their advisors don’t
publish in OA journals, or recommend publishing OA, so why should they?
Moreover, those of us at smaller institutions need the visibility of
publishing in well-read, “higher impact” journals more than those at larger
institutions with greater “traffic” of visiting speakers, meeting
attendance, colleague networks, etc.*
