On October 20th, 2014 Nature Communications started its transition to become a fully open access journal. All papers submitted on or after the 20th will require authors to pay an article processing charge (APC), and will be openly accessible on the journals website once published. Papers published or submitted prior to that date will remain on the subscription model throughout 2015. Nature Communications is the first Nature-branded journal to become open access.
Nature has released a study of the 100 most highly-cited science papers of all time. These were determined from citation counts in Web of Science (WoS) for roughly 58 million items. Results of the study include:
Nature also evaluated Google Scholar Rankings and found that two-thirds of Google’s top 100 cited works are books, and that one-third of the top 100 journal articles differ from those identified by Web of Science, with more entries representing the fields of economics and psychology.
