As a recent study indicates, pre-publishing papers in preprint servers, such as arXiv, does not necessarily lead to the subsequent publication of the scholarly articles in prestigious journals, while being associated with co-authorship.

Whereas Open Access inherently promotes the international visibility of scholarly books and articles as well as collaborations with peer researchers, how it interacts with scientific communities remains insufficiently researched. Oliver Wieczorek, Mark Wittek and Raphael H. Heiberger’s pre-print article seeks to fill this research gap in scholarly literature through its analysis of the papers uploaded to arXiv, a physics-oriented repository, also covering the fields of mathematics and computer science, established in 1991.
