Due to differences in citation practices amongst scientific disciplines,
existing research on a possible open access citation advantage remains
limited. A new study seeks to overcome these limitations by
investigating whether there is a possible OA citation advantage across all
fields. Lars Kullman  presents his findings on cross-field citation
comparisons between OA and non-OA articles from the Chalmers University of
Technology self-archive repository. The results indicate an advantage.
*The OA articles studied in this paper have a 22% higher field normalized
citation rate than the non-OA articles.​*
