English abstract

Web of knowledge (WoK) presented in January 2014 a number of important changes in version 5.13.1, including its name change (to “Web of science”; the database was renamed “Web of science core collection”) and the introduction of new tools to refine search results, among which is the option to select articles published in open access journals. This function checks global scientific output over the last decade (2004-2013) to determine the percentage of total publishing that is open access, both worldwide and in Spain. The percentages for the 20 countries with the highest scientific production during the study period are analyzed. The results indicate a slow but steady growth of OA in the WoS, the elite source of scientific literature.

Spanish abstract

La plataforma Web of knowledge (WoK) ha introducido en enero de 2014 una serie de importantes modificaciones en su versión 5.13.1 como su cambio de denominación (pasa a denominarse Web of science, mientras que la base de datos propiamente dicha pasa a llamarse Web of science core collection), o la introducción de nuevas herramientas para el refinamiento de los resultados, entre las que destaca la opción de seleccionar los artículos publicados en revistas de acceso abierto. Se analiza la producción mundial durante la última década (2004-2013) con el fin de determinar el porcentaje de publicaciones en acceso abierto respecto del total, tanto a nivel mundial como para el caso español. Igualmente se analizan estos porcentajes para los 20 países con mayor producción científica en el período estudiado. Los resultados indican un crecimiento lento pero imparable del OA dentro de WoS, es decir, en la elite de las publicaciones científicas.
