BMJ - Head To Head: Should I publish in an open access journal? (4)

19 April, 2019

"Preferentially disseminating industry funded work"- I wonder if industry funded research is indeed more likely to be OA. My hunch is the opposite is the case. One example would be pharma, where research is often published in very expensive pharm journals. This would be a good thing to investigate!
