Countries that invest in Open Access more aggressively tend to see a larger
increase in their internationally collaborative publications.¹
And this increase is proportional to their total research output,
meaning that scientists across the globe are working together more often.
From 2000 to 2016, publications that were fully funded, collaborative, and Open Access
accounted for 6.3% of all output but received 15.2% of the citations.²
