      free online access increases the impact of research
      literature, as
      measured by citations, 50 percent to 250 percent," I am not
      sure what
      "study after study" refers to, though is clearly is a
      reference to
      Harnad's work. 

      Dr. Harnad has provided one other refererence
      so perhaps
      "study after study" means literally that: two studies. Or
      maybe there are
      more, but I can't find references.

I was referring to the many studies collected by Steve Hitchcock in his
excellent bibliography:

The effect of open access and downloads ('hits') on citation impact: a
bibliography of studies
