Abstract EN

Background : In recent years, there has been an increasing trend towards open-access (OA) publishing.

Objective : To evaluate the current status of OA Scopus-indexed journals of ophthalmology regarding quality and volume.

Design : A Cross-Sectional Study.

Setting : University of Jordan Hospital, Amman, Jordan.

Method : Active journals indexed by Scopus in 2017 were investigated.

Data were gathered and filtered into OA or non-OA ophthalmology journals.

Eight variables were adopted to compare the quality of the included journals namely: CiteScore, CiteScore Percentile, Citation Count, Scholarly Output, Percent Cited, SCImago Journal Rank (SJR), Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP), and SCImago Quartiles.

Result: One hundred eight ophthalmology journals were indexed by Scopus in 2017.

OA journals were 29 (26.9 %).

We found that OA journals did not have higher impact indices, and the only index that differs between OA and non-OA ophthalmology journals was SJR.

Conclusion : The increasing demand of OA publishing has not yet been linked to improved quality and citation advantage.-
