McVeigh, Marie E. "Open Access Journals in the ISI Citation Databases: Analysis of Impact Factors and Citation Patterns: A Citation Study from Thomson Scientific": "We found that the currently available OA journals are more often among the lower-ranking journals in the field by Journal Impact Factor, and Immediacy Index, although three of the four subject groups studied have one or more OA journals among the top 9% of the category. We also discovered that many OA journals rank higher by Immediacy Index than by Journal Impact Factor. The distribution by rank differs greatly by field, with high-ranking OA journals being most frequent in the Physics, Engineering & Mathematics subjects."
