10 Are open access journals tracked for impact factors and are they indexed in bibliographic databases?

Open access journals are tracked for impact factors just as subscription-based journals and are deposited into bibliographic databases and any full text repositories without any embargo period.Authors are also able to deposit the final version of their open access articles in any institutional repository immediately upon publication.
Although most of our SpringerOpen journals are relatively new, 17 journals already have a 2012 impact factor, and all journals are indexed in major abstract and indexing services such as Scopus, Google Scholar or PubMed Central.
