        Clinical trials Journal articles describing 85 microarray trials        Looked at the availability of Open Data supporting the articles to see if this correlated with citation impact. Time elapsed for citations to accrue: 4 to 7 years      No      Publicly-available datasets (open data) are significantly associated with a 69% increase in citations to articles that the data accompany. This correlation is independent of Journal Impact Factor, country of authors and time since publication
