Going for Gold: How does the access type of articles in hybrid journals affect the reach and impact of research?
Many studies have already looked at the advantages of publishing open access (OA) over non-OA, however few have explored the effects of publishing OA articles in hybrid journals—journals that contain both a mixture of OA and non-OA articles. Fewer still have directly compared the differences in impact and reach for the full range of publishing models in hybrid journals, such as Gold OA articles to subscription articles where an earlier article version (e.g. the accepted manuscript or preprint) has been self-archived in an OA repository.

In 2021, Springer Nature commissioned an analysis of 60,567 articles published in 1,262 of its hybrid journals, measuring reach by the number of downloads and the attention reflected in the Altmetric Attention Score, and impact through the number of citations. This presentation will discuss the findings from the recent Springer Nature white paper, "Going for Gold: Exploring the Reach and Impact of Gold Open Access Articles in Hybrid Journals," as well as potential implications of these findings for authors, and for institutional and funder policy decisions. Jessica Monaghan, Director of Policy and Performance, OA, at Springer Nature will give a presentation and answer your questions.

Jess Monaghan is Director of Policy and Performance, Open Access, at Springer Nature, where she has worked for the past seven years, focusing on enabling Open Research. After completing an AHRC-funded PhD in History at the University of Exeter, she moved from academia to scholarly publishing, joining the Open Research team at Macmillan Publishing in 2014. In her current role, Jess holds responsibility for developing OA policies and initiatives across the breadth of Springer Nature portfolios, including both journals and books.
