An Innovative Approach to Bridging Open Access, Collection Development, and Faculty:
Altmetric and CiteScore Analyses at a Large Public University
This study examines the outcomes of an altmetric analysis of open access (OA) and non-open access (non-OA) publications from a Large Business School (LBS), R1 University, Campus A and Campus B. It explains the magnitude of 2014–2020 business faculty OA and non-OA publications and their relative scholarly impact and metrics. The continued increase in the volume of OA articles suggests that professors are gradually accepting OA articles, and that altmetric and CiteScore journal ranking metrics data may strengthen strategic initiatives for business librarians to assist faculties and university libraries with collective decision-making processes.
