Open access on the rise

Denmark’s universities are making more of their research outputs available through open access, with 36 per cent of the articles they published in 2017 being openly available.

The rate of open-access publishing increased by 13 percentage points in a year, from 23 per cent to 36 per cent, a government study reported on 18 April. Three universities—the IT University of Copenhagen, the Technical University of Denmark and the Copenhagen Business school—made more than 50 per cent of their researchers’ articles openly available.

In specific research areas, the government said that open-access publication rates in the health sciences were still too low. Although the open-access rate in this field increased by 15 percentage points, this took the new rate to just 31 per cent.
