Wikipedia articles should preferentially cite open access literature over closed- or toll-access resources of equivalent scholarly quality.

Wikipedia articles can benefit from citing relevant open access scholarly materials, such as journal articles and doctoral dissertations. Conversely, open access resources can benefit from being cited in relevant Wikipedia articles.
