  4. 4. Green road towards Open Access • Denmark´s National Strategy is primarily focused on Green Open Access: Parallel archiving of quality-assured research articles in institutional or subject-specific digital repositories with online Open Access. Green Open Access is a swift and cost-effective method for disseminating highly valued and quality assured scientific articles. • The golden model can be applied however, when it does not lead to an increase of costs for publishing research. The journal as such is published as Open Access, and all its articles are immediately accessible online free of charge. The costs – Article Processing Charges – are typically covered by the researcher. For the time being, this model often implies considerable extra costs for public authorities in relation to the existing subscription-based publication model. 5 /
  5. 5. Fundamental terms for the implementation of Open Access • The aggregate public expenditure for scientific publication may not increase significantly as a result of the implementation of Open Access • The implementation of Open Access may not hinder researchers’ freedom of publication. - Open Access in Denmark contains continued quality assurance of research findings in the form of journal peer review 5 5 /
  6. 6. Denmark´s National Open Access Strategy (1) • The first version of the strategy was launched by the Minister of Higher Education and Science in June 2014: ○ Target: 100% OA in 2022 • A revision of the strategy was underway in 2017-2018 in a close dialoque with the National Steering Committe for Open Access: ○ the target was too ambitious (36% OA in 2018) ○ the division of labour was unclear – who were responsible for what? 5 /
  7. 7. Denmark´s National Open Access Strategy (2) • A new (revised) version of the strategy was launched by the Minister of Higher Education and Science in June 2018: ○ Target postponed: 100% OA in 2025 ○ Clear division og labour between stakeholders, including the responsibility of the Ministry to monitor the progress of OA in Denmark Page 7 5 /

  10. 10. New (revised) strategy of OA (2018) - “Once a year, the Ministry of Higher Education and Science will monitor the implementation of Open Access via the Open Access Indicator (OAI) to support that all parties are doing their utmost to develop and expand free accessibility to Danish research results. - With this target, the Ministry of Higher Education and Science commits itself to operating and developing the Open Access Indicator according to the needs of the users, with the precondition that the necessary financing is in place.” Page 10 5 /
  11. 11. The implementation of the strategy in collaboration with stakeholders (I) • National Steering Committe on Open Access was appointed by the Minister in 2014 (gave input to the formulation of the strategy) • Mandate:To coordinate the implementation of the strategy • Chairman: The Director General of the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science • Members: • The 8 Danish Universities • Public and private research foundations • Danish University Colleges • Governmental research institutions • Denmark´s Electronic Research Library (DEFF) • Meetings: 11 in 2014-2018 5 / Page 11
  12. 12. The implementation of the strategy in collaboration with stakeholders (II) • The National Steering Committe on Open Access decided to set up a task force in 2014 to develop an Open Acces Indicator • Based on the task force report, the Ministry - in coordination with the National Steering Committe - decided to develop the Open Access Indicator in 2015. • The Open Access Indicator came into operation in 2016 (operator: Technical University Denmark) • The first officiel measurement, April 2016: 18% OA • The latest officiel measurement, April 2021: 60% OA 5 / Page 12

  14. 14. Some reflections on the importance of monitoring - Monitoring is an important tool in the Ministry´s dialoque with the universities about their OA performance - Monitoring creates a healthy competion between universities which has had a positive impact on the level of OA in DK - The Open Acces Indicator informs the political level about the progress of the OA strategy 5 / Page 14
